Pickin' and Grinnin'


So I was on my way to rehearsal last night and
I looked in the rearview mirror to check my nose
because something was tickling it,
and I was driving and checking, and kind of wiping,
NOT picking,
and I look down and there is a couple walking their dog
and the man is looking right at me.

I made a left turn and I'm thinking,
"SHOOT! That guy thinks I picked my nose!"

Well I am here to state emphatically that I
was NOT picking my nose last night at 6:55pm on Grand River
just before turning onto Elm.

Checking your nose in the rearview mirror
just before meeting with people is a long-standing
practice and should be encouraged in my opinion.

It doesn't have anything to do with picking your nose.
When people pick their noses, they lean their head DOWN.
Think about it.
They do not angle their noses upward,
which is proper nose-checking procedure.

Nose-checking: acceptable, desirable behavior.
Nose-picking: completely different and I was not doing it.

Thank you.

You have to just accept the fact that the people watching you will always think you were picking your nose and will be telling the story forever and embellish it as time goes on. Maybe they have a blog and in a year we will read someone's blog telling about you digging in your nose while trying to drive. Hahahaha

This reminds me of some of the vacations I took with my boys. We used to make up a scavenger hunt and someone picking their nose always made the list. I never checked closely to see if there was a difference between a nose check or a nose pick. Just think, you could have helped someone on their scavenger hunt.
