Things I never thought I'd do. Part twelve.


Today at work I had a twenty minute discussion about where boogers do NOT go. Then my class spent ten minutes looking for boogers on the gym floor.



What did YOU do at work today?

Not that... lol. Tell me they didn't find any please.

Sandee said...

I picked a few today, but I didn't look for them after that. You lead such an interesting life.

Have a terrific day. :)

Steven Anthony said...

I spent 20 minutes looking under my desk for boogers...lol kidding, or am I?

The Wifey said...

Eww. The gym floor of all places? Haha. How random!

Gigi said...

I may never complain about my job again....at least I'm not looking for boogers.....

SkylersDad said...

I spent my day looking for somebody competent to make a decision, or at least care a bit.

I would rather have looked for boogers...

Alix said...

Ummm.... {tapping foot...}

I, Uh..... {strumming fingers}

Well, I mean, I.... {picking nose}

I drank vodka. That's for damn sure.

Vodka Mom said...

this, of course, after many little darling were tattling on each other about putting boogers on the gym floor during gym. IN FRONT of the gym teacher. ha.

Gayle said...

Kids are disgusting little creatures. I know, I have five of them. I almost can't go in the bathroom anymore. My stomach is getting weak as I get old.

Secretia said...

Boring paperwork and filing.
Wasted some time looking out the window too!

Did anyone mention a Kleenex as the right place?

The only right place.

Not The Rockefellers said...

Don't you love it...I love it when they come over to me with a specimen and ID it...this is Jimmy's I know his boogers look like this...

Truth :)

I certainly haven't done anything that exciting!

Ms. Sarah said...

we need to hook you up with the boogie wipe mom team. My day certinly wasnt spent this way but we did have a discussion on lifting the seat and aming in the toliet with the 6 and 4 year old

Brian Miller said...

i wonder how many got eaten during the search?

Lori said...

LOL! And I thought getting my kids to be fascinated and sit for an eternity watching ants was bad. I think this tops it for sure. Hopefully they learned something.

Jan said...

Nothing anywhere NEARLY as appealing, trust me.

otin said...

I did a job with a crew of men who do not speak the same language as me, and was successful!

jessica said...

i repeatedly said "take your thumb out of your mouth and your finger out of your nose!" can they even breathe like that??

Sara said...

How do you have these conversations with a serious face?

I want to be a fly on the wall in your classroom.

justsomethoughts... said...

i had an audit
thanks for asking
i'd rather have searched for boggers on any gym floor
or urinal

ChiTown Girl said...

I would have preferred booger hunting to DIBELing today :(

w said...

today i work, i actually picked boogers.

yeah. i'm a career mom.

visiting from sits.

Anne said...

A coworker was trying to convince me to STOP using hand sanitizer because it kills the good bacteria as well as the bad bacteria... I assured her that my children consume and ENORMOUS amount of boogers every day during carpet time. I am not worried about them getting their quota of bacteria, good or bad.

justsomethoughts... said...

or boogers.

Coco said...

No work today. Except looking for work. I did find a few boogers though. Tis the season after all.

Suburban Correspondent said...

I've explained to my kids repeatedly that we do not rub boogers on the walls or on the furniture. Is that weird? I thought it was one of Piaget's stages.

Sadly, at 37, I have a nasty booger habit. I'm not hardcore, just a recreational junkie...

...maybe I should've been in class today.

(PS. I accidentally left my comment under my wife's account - she has a habit too, but it didn't seem right to call her out like that.) =-)

Tortuga said...

I sat in a student union and watched college kids pick boogers when they thought no one else was watching. Isn't it lovely how old habits die hard.

Bano said...

I've watched my students pick their noses in the middle of class...and they're in middle school!

Anna See said...

my day sounds much the same as yours.

Evonne said...

EW! This is a reminder as to why I don't miss my job!

Mrs. E said...

Well, not that! But, I did pull a piece of dried gum out of a computer. argh!

Zip n Tizzy said...

My 4 year old peed on the floor and then my 5 year old peed in the bath.
It was a lot of fun.
(Not)

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

Today in a class discussion clitorectomy came up. The girls were appalled and the boys were uncomfortable.

Tiaras said...

ha ha - today at the nail salon my little picked a "yucky" and couldn't get it off her finger says -"I'm just going to put it right here momma, okay?" as she stuck it to the drying table!

Awake In Rochester said...

*Looking at floor.* HMM!

Irish Gumbo said...

I got nothin'. Although I often feel like I spend my days looking for boogers...

G said...

I spent all afternoon writing a post about chat rooms. Helped passed the time because I had no work to do.

Rick Daley said...

I was busy hiding boogers on the gym floor. Why do you ask?

mo.stoneskin said...

I cannot believe that you've been flicking your boogers on the gym floor.

Maureen@IslandRoar said...

I did the Hokey Pokey and had to sing for Story Time at the library. Very scary, not my usual gig. But I have to say it beats boogers...

Real Live Lesbian said...

Nothing nearly as interesting as you, my dear.....EVER!

Carolyn...Online said...

I just discovered a secret stash that must be three years old on the wall next to the bed. Petrified boogers do not release that easily from the wall.

CSY said...

Nothing as exciting as you, my friend. I have had to scrape them off the wall behind the beds when we moved out of a house...why is it they don't quite understand that there is tissue for a reason...LOVE the kiddies!

Megan said...

I heard thru the grape vine that you still need a roomie for BlissDom. Me, too! Do you have a room reserved? I'd love to help cut the costs if you do.

Let me know!

Candy's daily Dandy said...

What?

I though everybody wiped their boogers on the gym floor.
They don't?

Red Shoes said...

damn... that's what we should have discussed in class today...

That would have been more entertaining than the vapid shiznit I had prepared...

~shoes~

Ladybird World Mother said...

Boogers?? They're bogies this side of the Atlantic... think I prefer boogers. Me, what did I do?? Tried to locate awful smell AGAIN, but this time at school. Smelt of Very Old Diaper. Turned out to be Very Old Washing Up Cloth that had never got to the washing pile and was lurking under the sink. Yeuurrrcchhh. Thats what I did! xxx

Nishant said...

I did pull a piece of dried gum out of a computer.

Work from home India

Otter Thomas said...

I read a blog post about boogers.

Elenka said...

What did I do at work today?
Not that!

Joanie M said...

and here I thought we were doing gum checks at work when he have to check under the tables weekly.

Mrs. C. said...

I watched second graders make snowmen out of torn paper and have a discussion about why girls are unique. Apparently, girls are unique because their lips are "fresher", which makes them nicer for kissing...

CatLadyLarew said...

Yeah... I teach four-year-olds. I know all about boogers.

Cora said...

Pffft! I'm a nanny. I did the same damn thing. Only it was in my car, not in a gym.

When I was a kid I wanted to be like Mary Poppins. Mary was so glamourous with all the booger, poop, and farting scenes cut out of the movie.
