You Can Pick Your Friends, You Can Pick Your Nose, But You Can't Pick Your Friend's Nose. Unless You Use a Booger Ghost.

The twins are learning about super important stuff in preschool this week.  Take today's handout, for example.

As I understand it, you generally cannot pick your nose.  Instead, you must blow your nose into a tissue.  HOWEVER.  If you get a crusty hard green booger in your nose that refuses to be blown outward, you can make a little tissue coat for your finger known as a "Booger Ghost" to remove the offending booger manually.

Good to know.

(I'm hoping the above illustrations are not drawn to scale, because that booger ghost does not look like it would fit comfortably up that kid's nostril.)

Also, Aidan explained, you should never eat your boogers, because that will give you a tummy ache.  Seems like that should've been on the handout too, but whatever.   

I have not asked either Aidan or Owen to demonstrate Booger Ghost usage yet, although it's on my list of things to do.  Although it doesn't really seem seasonally appropriate, you know?  I mean, it's not Halloween anymore.  It's Thanksgiving.

Wait.

I know what to do.

We'll use a Booger Turkey instead.  It's perfect.

You're welcome for giving you another great holiday idea just in time for Thanksgiving.

Jen said...

LOL! This is perfect!

I can't stop laughing. I have never heard of the booger ghost before, and I worked in childcare for years!!

What about for Christmas, Booger Reindeer Antler?

Hahahahahahaha! That is so funny! I think the Booger Turkey is a brilliant idea, although it makes Turkey dinner sound less appealing, but whatever. :) I found you on Liz's blog (belle, bean, chicago dog) with the LTTMMSE meme. I love it! Glad I found you.

The turkey beak certainly adds an element of danger! :)

HAHAHAHAHA!!! Love it.

I especially enjoyed the picture of the snot being blown inward, towards the brain haha

Clearly this is going to require a Santa ghost. And then a Cupid Ghost. And we can't even discuss what'll happen at Easter.

Danae said...

Frankly that picture of the kid and the ghost is disturbing. Who on earth came up with that??? But thanks for sharing. I had a good laugh!

HYSTERICAL. Hubby introduced the girls to the "tissue drill", which I believe is the same thing.

i think the beak would be a great help with those sticky boogers.

Katherine said...

Booger Ghosts! Excellent. I just thought of our next family activity.

Cheryl said...

Ah, the booger turkey. Of course! Nothing says thanksgiving quite like getting one of those big dried-up suckers out of your nose!
