It’s bedtime and just as I tuck Scorch under the covers, he sits straight up.
“Mom- I have a story to tell you!”
“Scorch- it’s bed time, it better be short.”
“It’s short- and soooo funny, Mom. So funny. Today, at lunch, we were all sitting around talking. And do you know what we were talking about Mom? It was so funny.”
“No idea, Buddy- what were you talking about?
“Boogers!! We were talking about boogers. Adam asked that everyone at the table who picked their boogers to raise their hand. So all of us raised our hands and then we had to go around the table and say who in our house picked their boogers too. So I told everyone that Bean picked her nose too and when she was little she ATE them!!!! We laughed so hard that Frank almost snorted out his milk out of his nose. It was hysterical.”
Tonight I’m thankful for a table full of absolutely gross 5 year olds and the fact that boogers are never not funny.
