General chatter - Cure for late afternoon munchies: Stick mint up your nose!

This sounds nutty but it actually works! Plant some mint in a pot (it will take over your garden if you plant it in the ground) and if you experience a dumb hunger (as opposed to real hunger, in which case, eat something) but I mean dumb munchie type hunger, crush up a mint leaf and stick it up your nose!

My friend's accupuncturist told her this and it totally works!

I have tons of mint in the garden and had a stupid moment of munchie weakness earlier so I am definitely going to give this a go next time, even though I'll probably look stupid haha!

Ha! Well I figure it's way smarter (and way cheaper!) than putting cocaine up one's nose, LOL. Let me know if this works, I can't decide if it's just one of those "Dumbo Magic Feather" type placebo effects!

With MY luck I'd pick poison ivy and stick it up my nose thinking it was mint! :D
