Today I had an epiphany. It's rare, but yes, every now and then I do get a flash of brilliance. Today, I realised what's missing in our lives.
Have you ever noticed how we're clever folks, us humans? We wear clothes and we invent stuff. And thanks to our genius, we have an array of nifty little gadgets to help us get by in our daily lives.
We have toothpicks that help us remove the rest of our meal from between our teeth. We've got cotton buds and those tiny little "scoop" things to rid our ears of the gunk that build up inside. Manicurists use a little device that helps them push in our cuticle so we have neat and tidy nails. Heck, we even have that nasty little piece of metal to help us pop our pimple or squeeze out that blackhead.
"So, how come we don't have anything to pick the booger from our nose," I ask Mae, "Don't we deserve a pick or something when we go for gold?". Mae, being Mae ponders seriously upon this enquiry as she does with every question that I ask. Hehheheh!!
"I know!" she exclaimed as it hits her. "It's because we don't need them. We can reach in all by ourselves."
I still think we need an apparatus for nose-picking. If not for our noses, then for Baby's. If we were to dig his tiny nose with our porky fingers, the poor little guy will have huge, flaring nostrils by the time he's 7.
Do we need nosepicks or what?
