The Big Book of Boy Stuff

I found this book in Costco last week and knew I needed to get it for my son for Christmas. {Yes, I realize we haven't even had Halloween yet, but this mama gets started WAY early on her shopping.}

Anyway...I was flipping through some of the pages the other night and came across this little tidbit of information:


Fun Snot Facts

For a time, there was a delicious candy on the market called Snot Candy. It came in a big plastic nose. To get the gooey candy out, you had to stick a finger up the container's nostril. Of course, Snot Candy had a mascot: everyone's favorite superhero, Loogie Man!


There is an Eskimo tribe that has a unique solution to a baby's stuffed nose. The mother sucks the snot out of the baby's nose and then spits it on the ground!


We all know what diarrhea is, but did you know you can have the same problem from your nose? "Rhinorrhea" {ri-no-ree-uh} is the word used to describe a lot of really runny mucus coming out of your nose.


Now you know....
and knowing is half the battle. Aren't you glad I shared?

Funny, I saw the same book and got it for Austin. Boys love weird stuff like that!

I always forget about this blog, sorry I'll try to be a better commenter.
