Anyway the new one is Honeywell, it's warm-air, it's quiet, it has nifty buttons. I've filled it up three times. Humidity in the apartment has gone from 20% to almost 35%. I hate how my skin and lungs feel in the winter... I'm almost sure this will help.
The man is not a huge fan of humidity, but he keeps getting bloody noses so I told him this would help. He said that it would also help if I'd stop punching him in the face... sort of a mean thing to say, I've only done that once and it was a total accident, I swear. It was early in the morning, I was half asleep, he was leaning in to kiss me before he left for work and I lifted my arms up to hug him and he just leaned into a fist in motion. this was a few weeks ago. He dramatically flopped down onto the bed and said "OW", then after a few seconds, "I'm bleeding."
So that was a morning I was supposed to sleep in, but I had to get up and help wash blood out of my pillow. I really think it was the humidity.
