i was saying that a good new year’s resolution would be to stop picking the nose. it’s a good thing to strive for, even though it might be a hard habit to break. here in the US, you can pretty much look around at other cars on the freeway, and it won’t be 15 seconds before you see someone digging in their booger cave. i’m cool with cleaning it out in private, but use a tissue and do it in the bathroom where you can wash your damn hands afterwards. (and for god’s sake, if you pick your nose in our linkin park meet-and-greet line, then try to shake our hands afterward, you are the scum of the earth).
there are people who go in with the index (very direct, unabashed approach–this is the guy or girl who just don’t care what you think), some that use the pinky (for small nostrils…or small boogers).
but here’s my personal fav: i love the person, usually a guy, who does what i like to call the “gentleman’s nosepick,” a technique where you rest the fist near the nose, as if you’re going to cover your mouth or cough…but you don’t. you move the hand up and go in with the thumb. the thumb is key. it’s far more discreet than the other fingers, and therefore is usually the technique least likely to result in someone else saying, “nasty! i just caught that guy with his hand up his nose! hahaha!”
anyway, i could go on, but i think i’ll skip it. i’m going to sleep. anyway, join me in a group-new-year’s-resolution to stop picking our noses in public.
…and now for that video. i guarantee that 99% of you haven’t seen this video, much less heard the song, but go ahead and act like you have. this was my sheeeeit back in ’95. smif n wessun’s sound bwoy bureill…
