Must Be A Guy Thing

I was reading King-Of-Fools this morning (like every other morning :), and its a good thing I wasn't having breakfast at the time. I've pretty much been broken of the habit of sneaking in my email/surfing while having breakfast because ChrisMuir/DayByDay is invariablely my first stop. Trying to eat/drink while reading DayByDay is SO dangerous! It often leads to uproarious laughter, which either means I spill my breakfast or sputter orange juice on my monitor/keyboard. Anyway, at least Chris wasn't talking about boogers today.

Thats right. Boogers. Not a word that would normally come to mind first thing in the morning. But I'm a girl. DEFINITELY a "girly" girl. Apparently the King-Of-Fools is a real guy. So's his son.

Side note: I'm in awe of his Queen being able to nip it in the bud, but I find it ominous that the question still simmers in his mind.

Boogers. That feels really odd to type. I mean, its not a curse word. But it still feel taboo. Like something you would only type behind closed doors in the privacy of your own home while engaging in shady conversations with anonymous internet buddies using fake names.

AND it occurs to me that I have a booger story of my own to blog about. Thats right, there's actually a booger story. When my oldest son was about 18 months old, he put his finger in his nose and found an especially horrid booger. He looked at it. He looked at me. He looked at it. He knew it went in a nose, but he also knew it wasn't going back in HIS nose. (wait for it ... wait ...) Quick as a wink he reached over and stuffed it in my nose!

As a parent, I find myself often uttering sentences I never thought I would combine words to form. "Do NOT put your booger in my nose" is one of them!



Had to do that!

I think I've figured out the answer to my question on my own...

A load is equivalent to: 2 fingernails full.

LOL Looks like Chris hit me with a "load of boogers" !

And, The King begs the question ... how long are the fingernails? dragon-lady long nails or short squared-off macho nails?

Thanks for putting that question in my head, like I don't have enough problems. Thats worse than forcing someone to hum the Flintstones theme all day. Great, now that I've mentioned the Flintstones ... I'll be humming the theme song all day while thinking about boogers. Ewwwww :)

Ewwwww......Lucy, I'm shocked at you :) No, just kidding...I figure if you have know all about boogers...although, I must now add that it does feel kinda strange to type? Hmmm...
