The Nose Knows Or Not

How do you not know you have a nail up your nose?  I just heard on the news a man had an MRI which caused a pain in his face.  On his way home he coughed up a one inch nail.  The MRI must have dislodged it.  It was stated the nail had been in his nose for 30 years and that the man never knew it was there or how it got there.  My question is, if he didn't know it was there or how it got there, how do they know it was in his nose for 30 years.  Just one of those things I wonder about.

    Wow — that's crazy. Didn't that guy ever go through a metal detector to get on a plane??

    Did you say you heard that on the news? Or did you read it in the Enquire.

    Aha! Because, I'll bet you anything he can remember the incident that lodged the nail up there. My son swears that there is a lego up his nose–he's maintained this for about ten years. Maybe someday twenty years from now he will sneeze and out will come a little lego man and he will say, I told you so! I just read a similar story only the guy had a nail in his brain–he knew he'd been hit in the head by a richochetted nail, but thought it had just knicked him and later it turned up in an xray.

    I don't know why but the image of a Lego man in your sons nose made me laugh. My mom told me when she was little she put a dried bean in her nose, she said it wasn't easy getting it out.
