From Mmmm to Ooky

I was pondering a deep thought:

When does eating your boogers stop being a delicious treat sent by the nose fairy and start being the grossest thing ever this side of licking a cockroach?

I have talked to my girls about how boogers are the body's way of taking out the trash and we don't eat trash, we throw it away. They learned enough from this lecture to pick and sneak.

Yuck, yuck and triple yuck.

There must be some kind of switch that flips because I don't harbor the secret desire to try my nasal contents. Oh that I could throw that switch now!

Can I get an "eww"?

Glad to know I'm not the only one with this problem!
No advice, really. But there's a gross song that they play on the Kid's Stuff channel on Sirius Satellite Radio about a booger being an alien and the only way the kid can stop it from taking over the world, is to eat it ... Do kids know something we don't? :)

Mleh. It's a mystery--I remember being that age. I remember doing it. I don't know when I crossed over...maybe it had something to do with reaching school & peer pressure.
