I title this for the reason that scavengers don’t just find things, but they generally use them or eat them (in the animal world at least). I have a few students that have a habit of consuming the things that we civilized folk would generally term non-consumable. I am talking about the infamous “booger.” We’ve had the discussion about refraining from this activity a number of times, but it must be incredibly addictive. I’m not sure what they treasure more: long, stringy and sticky or crusty and crunchy. Either way…remember this fact: The next time you continue to pick your boogers and put them into your mouth WHILE your teacher is staring directly at you…you have a serious problem for which modern medicine has yet to determine a solution.

Awesome story…I’m still chuckling. I hope the end of your year comes together well. Praying for you brother.
Oh, and just for the record I prefer the hard and crusty…I mean…hypothetically speaking that is…uh…
I’m reminded of your blog entry every day when I see grown adults (redundant) picking their noses. Usually when someone is driving poorly, it’s a result of either talking on the cell phone or scavenging the nasal passage.
There’s always room for boogers…
As my self proclaimed picker brother says…”EVERYONE PICKS THEIR NOSE!!”
