Only in the Library . . .

There was a boy in the library today who came up to ask me for some DVD's. The whole time I'm staring at his right nostril which is lined inside and out with lots of colorful lines. Just his right nostril. I try hard to pretend I don't see that there is something wrong here, but it's hard not to say something. Pretty soon his mother comes up and sees the same thing I do.

"Honey, have you been sticking felt pens up your nose, again?" she asks.

Again? I think.

I've long since learned not to ask questions.

oh man. What is the motivation behind sticking felt pens up your nose? GROSS!

Although it could be a boy thing. In 5th grade there was a kid that was fooling around and stuck a pen up his nose. The cap got stuck and he had to go to the nurse's office. On the way there, however, somehow he got it out and came back grinning with cap in hand. ugh.
