Alice is having an awfully difficult time keep her right index finger out of her nostrils. Yep. I’ve got myself a nose-picker. I’ve heard the standard excuse, “I’m just itchin’ it!” more times than I could count. There was a new one earlier this month. I told her to stop picking her nose, and she replied,

“I’m just moving a booger.”
