picking my noseShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
my mom told me if I picked my nose I would get worms. So the next time I picked my nose, I proclaimed loudly "I've got worms!"
My aunt caught me picking my nose one day when I was really young. She told me that late at night, when I was asleep, little spacemen flew their spaceship up peoples noses, got out and went poop. That was what boogers really were. I was so concerned that I stayed up all night that night with my hand covering my nose in an attempt to keep them out of my nose.
I used to think that there was tiny little people that lived in my nose and made my boogers. So if I ran out of boogers, I had to wait for the little people to make more.
I use to believe tha if you picked your nose during Mr. Belvadere Dolph Lungren would bust though the wall and drop you ass first on your head into a vat of poutine.
when i was about 5 or so, my sister told me that when you get a bloodly nose and you tilt your head back, all the blood will go straight to your head and you would die. well maybe a week later... i busted my nose while playin on the monkey bars, so, i went to the nurse and i said to her "am i going to die because of all the blood is going to go to my brain?" the nurse told me of course not. i didnt belive her.
my mom had told me if you pick your nose too much, you will end up touching your brains with your fingers. i never did that again!
I used to think that there was a monster at the very end of my nose. So if I stuck my finger in there to far the monster would bite my finger off.
Needless to say I would barely put at part of my finger in my nose.
When i was little i used to pick my nose and my dad told me that ear wax was boogers before they got to your nose. So, i tried ear wax and it tasted really bad (even compared to boogers) and i thought it was so gross that boogers used to taste like that that i stopped eating my boogers.
I used to belive that if you picked your nose so far in with you pinkie, the nose monster would come and bite off your finger.
Once my friend to me that if you picked your nose a lot your nostrils would get really big. My teacher was all Italian, therefore had a pretty long nose making her nostrils very narrow. I thought that she must have never picked her nose once.
I used to believe that when you flick bogies on the floor they would just dissapear! Well you couldn't see them!
Not me my brother. He used to eat his boogers all the time. One day my grandma was fed up with it so she went and got a large Mason jar. She told him that if he wanted to eat his boogers so bad that he should start putting them in the jar and she would spread it on bread and make a snadwich for him...He never ate his boogers again.
i used to htink that wen u picked ur nose u lost brain cells and that my brain got smaller too
I used to pick my nose and eat it when I was a little kid and my parents tried just about everything they could to get me to stop. "It's going to bleed," "Boogers are made of dead spiders," etc. Anyway, one day, the excuse-du-jour was that every time you pick your nose, it's just going to grow longer and fatter and redder until it looks exactly like a carrot. I got proof when I saw a cartoon character whose nose looked exactly like that (it was supposed to be that way for the plot.) I was horrified because with all the nose-picking that had accumulated over the years, I was going to go to sleep and wake up the next morning with a three-foot carrot-looking nose! I wasn't able to sleep for weeks, and I haven't picked my nose since then. (I don't believe the story, but I still don't pick my nose because I think boogers are disgusting.)
I quite often pick my nose and I always get caght! I had a dream that if I picked my nose anymore , my nose would disappear during the night!!!
when i was a lil youth my mum said that if i kept digging out my nose, i would look like my grandmas friend who had two nustriels like a train tunnel lol i i really didnt want that.
My Mom used to tell me not to pick my nose because "buggers turn into bugs"...now, obviously this was an innocent attempt to keep my fingers out of my nostrils. I don't know if I really believed her, at first..anyway. But one day after digging for the nasal ore, I looked down and saw a ladybug...believe it or not that made a believer out of me. (Side note.....I actually believed that buggers were a part of brain tissue that had slipped down into the nose...I really did, hey, I was a weird kid..but, then, I'm kind of an odd adult, too.
I used to think that if you unscrewed your belly button (naval), your bum (butt) would drop off.
Also I had a teacher who used to yell at unsuspecting kids in the class "Don't pick your nose, your eyes will drop out". Truely terrifying. When I used to see those kids who had spectacles with a plaster over one of the lenses, I thought that they had been picking their noses too much.
my dad always used to tell me if i picked my nose i would get a big hole in my face.
When i was little i picked my nose, and my sister said that if you picked it you would get a blood clod in your brain. I still picked it, but then once while i was in bed i thought about what i had done to my brain and started crying.
