Five GIFs that express the sensation of flying with sinus congestion

The title pretty much says it all. Visiting family for Christmas is a great delight; however, flying home with a head cold is more like:

1. Bubblegum about to explode

2. The Death Star exploding

3. Doc Ock losing control of his sun

4. The birth scene in the Alien movies

5. Priori Incantatem in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Rest assured; despite all threats to the contrary, my ears did not, in fact, explode. If they had, it would have made a far better science fiction movie. The royalties would have been nice, but I think I’ll settle for a box of Kleenex and a pair of intact eardrums.

Merry Christmas, y’all.

*Graphics Interchange Format. The proper pronunciation of the acronym is a soft “g” sound: like JIF. –Urban Dictionary

The author of Snark on the Side is not your average run-of-the-millennial generation. Jen is a contradiction in terms: a graceful klutz, a smart blond, a math-savvy English major, a southern liberal, and an employed young adult with a master’s degree. Snark on the Side is a work in progress, born out of years of rambling email newsletters and anthropomorphized Christmas letters, small town observations, and the ever-present irony of pursuing a career with a degree in English literature. Thanks for visiting!
