Boogie Woogie Booger Boy from Apartment 5B

It is with great pride that I write these words: Theo has learned to deal with his own boogers.

He gets a tissue or napkin (apkin) or toilet paper and rolls the corner of it to make it thicker, then puts it in his nostril to collect the booger. He then holds up the tissue triumphantly and tells us, “Look! Boo-gah!” Accent on the “boo” (not buh, like we say).

I am fascinated that nature teaches little boys to show off their boogers. It is not learned. It is an inherent little boy trait. The booger-showing-off gene associated only with Y chromosomes.
