When I was about 3 or 4, I was sitting in my mom's room picking my nose and eating my boogers. Well, my mom came up and said "Don't you know that if you pick your nose and eat your boogers, they collect in your stomach and sooner or later a big green worm will crawl out of your mouth?"
I still pick my nose (who doesn't) but that scared me into not eating them, that's for sure.

I was always tolded that there was a little man in your nose that would bite your finger off if you picked your nose. In kindergarten, all my little friends would pick their noses and I would freak out!!!!

My sister always had one finger up her nose as a child. I told her that the 'bogies' were bits of dried brain she was picking out and if she didn't stop she would die. She believed me, but it didn't stop her nose picking habits.

I used to believe that if you picked your nose long enough you would touch your brain. That is what stopped me from picking my nose.

my mom has always told me that picking your nose makes big rings grow around your eyes and the only way to remove them is laser surgery. (which i believe is what happened to her!!) -& i've never picked boogers ever since.
