hard to take seriously

he got right up in my face, no more than a hand's length from my nose, and pointed his finger right between my eyes and said, "look buster, you can do it. don't you think for a second you can't. now go out and knock 'em dead at the book signing!", except when he was that close in mirror, i spied a wild long hair growing out the side of his nostril, making it virtually impossible to take him seriously, besides it wasn't like it was my book or anything, i was just going to study up on how it's done.

Leave the long hair. Instead of the Dead Poets Society, we could start the Long Nostril Hair Society for serious writers only.
