Let it never be said that we don't know how to live fast: as I type this, we are watching Mad Men Season 3 and trying at-home ear candling.
G: "What does it feel like?"
J: "I don't feel anything, but the burning sounds kind of like Rice Krispies."
G: (as I check out the remnants of the first candle, while the second one is burning) "OMG! WAX! GROSS!"
J: (lying on the bed with a flaming piece of muslin coming out of his ear)"Shutup! I can't see it! You suck!"
John did mine next, and it was actually relaxing - I nearly fell asleep (except for the fact that I could roll over and set the bed on fire). Also, my ears are apparently nastier than John's. I win!
I know some people scoff at efficacy, but I know what I saw in that candle. I will not post pics, because trust - it is fucking disgusting. But! I am fascinated and obsessed.
