My fault for asking.

I glanced over to find Claire's finger up her nose. She pulled it out and examined it. "Do you need a kleenex?" I whispered.

"Nope," she replied. "I can just lick it off."

Well of course, Christy -- why waste a perfectly good booger?

You know what the difference between brussels sprouts and boogers is, right? You can't get kids to eat brussels sprouts. My apologies if I've told that one before, but it's good enough to repeat.

Hi, came here via Mary's blog. Just a quick dip.

Enjoyed this.

If I catch one of my pupils digging for green gold I always ask them if they're going to eat it. (which beats wiping it under their desk) Invariably, it encourages more discretion all round.
