Nostril Shot

Story Submitted by Cameron:

Hannah and I were sitting next to each other on a park bench on what was to be our first and only date. I was in the middle of answering her question about my first job out of college when she pulled a camera out of her purse, said, "Nostril shot!" and uppercutted me in the nose with it.

It bled, and I ended up trying to find a nearby cafe to grab a fistful of napkins. The whole way, she repeated, "I'm sorry, I was just kidding around!"

I forgave her, as I was reasonably sure that she didn't mean to inflict pain. Still, I couldn't help but think, "What a weird thing to do to someone."

We sat down aside a pond and I was eventually able to remove the bloodied napkins from my nose. She asked me, "What was your first pet?"

I said, "I had a gerbil when I was—"

"Nostril shot!" She clobbered me in the nose again with her camera.

I shot up and jumped back. "You stupid bitch!" I yelled.

She looked like she was about to cry, said, "I said I was sorry!" then jumped to her feet and ran off.


  1. She's lucky OP didn't return the favor and punch her in the nose. If she keeps that up tho, someone will...
