When i was little, i always wondered why my grandpa had big nostrils and one finger with no nail. So i asked him why. I remember him saying he poked his nose a lot and that the booger monster bit his fingernail off. So i never picked my nose and now i tell my kids the same thing.

To scare me out of picking my nose, my grandmother told me the boogers would turn into worms.

When I was younger, I used to think that little dwarfs lived in my nose and mined booges like crystals. I was afraid to hurt the dwarfes if i picked my nose. I imagined them like the ones in Snow White.

I used to believe that if you picked your nose too much it would fall off and it would bleed all the time and never stop. So I would go around and say " You better stop picking your nose or it will fall off"!!

No picking your nose

my mother always told me that if I picked my nose my eyeballs would fall out of my head! I knew that when you sneezed your eyes always shut so I always thought there was a definite relationship between one's eye and nose functions.

When I was younger my father told me that if I picked my nose my nostril would stretch to accommodate the size of my finger.

Lord knows I didn't want big holes in my nose so I stopped picking my nose.

On the bus in elementary school there was a boy picking his nose. I started yelling how gross it was (especially since he ate it) when he argued back that boogers were made of sugar. I argued it was dirt and other gross stuff but he honestly believed they were sugar and ate them like candy.

When I was in kindergarten an older girl told me that if I picked my nose, worms would grow in my stomach. I asked her if she meant earthworms, and she said yes.

I didn't believe her, because I knew earthworms lived in the dirt and weren't parasites.

My uncle once told me that if you picked your nose too deep a spider would grab it and your finger would be stuck forever. Oddly, it didn't break my habit of picking, it just gave me severe arachnophobia!
