30 years ago I stopped picking/eating my nose


I’m pretty sure  I picked and ate my boogers until I was 14 or 15.

I’m uncertain if that’s late or early in the game to quit. Probably late. So why did it take me so long? A few reasons:

• 1. I think I liked the taste of boogers. Salty, sorta gooey. Crusty with time. Yums.

• 2. I rarely carried around tissues.

Um, that’s about it.

I often wonder whether adults pick their noses. But can I ask? Like, am I allowed to walk up to people and say, “Weird question, but do you pick your nose? And do you like the taste of boogers? And do you prefer crusty or slimy?”

Ah, the toughies.
