An inexpensive nose job

A 56 y/o male:

Patient: I broke my nose when I was younger and it had a bad curve, but since I've gotten older and started to wear glasses, it straightened out.

Me: You had your nose straightened with surgery?

Patient: No, wearing glasses with the nose pads just seemed to straighten it out.

Me: OK, that's great (it actually looked quite straight).

I couldn't think of anything else to say. For the rest of the day, however, I kept taking off my glasses to look at and feel my relatively flimsy nose pads.

I had no idea they were capable of such great feats!

I'm sure the plastic surgeons and ENT doctors will try to keep this from becoming widespread knowledge.
