There’s a Booger on my Lampshade

There’s a booger on my lampshade;

 a bunch sticking near my bed.

I’ve got quite a good collection

by the pillow near my head.

I don’t want my mom to find them

‘cause she fusses all the time;

about my picking and my digging

“It’s like you worked inside a mine”.

Sometimes I like to flick them;

they go clear across the room,

but I have to do it quickly cause

my mom could walk in soon.

“Don’t do that” she will holler;

first she’ll gag and then she’ll wretch.

Then she’ll rub my nose clean off

with some stupid, pink Kleenex.

I just can’t seem to help it,

there’s some in there I can tell.

 I love to clean them out but,

“No tissues near…oh well.”

There’ll be boogers on my lampshade;

and some tucked beside the couch.

A few flicked on the doggies;

maybe one inside my mouth.

But what’s a kid to do,

it brings me so much joy;

I simply must continue digging

after all, I am a boy!

  1. That is hilarious!! Tooters flicked one the other day just as I came around the corner and it almost hit me. She is very thankful that it didn’t and knows she is lucky lol.

  2. I’ve been WAITING for this one – title of your first book, right? hilarious!

  3. Oh well he is a boy after all and it comes with the territory, so to speak.

    Ugh and then to have to acknowledge that it is so true

  6. That is just too perfect! I only had one of those boys, can’t imagine dealing with more than one. The attraction must be universal, even my nephew was a digger, too.

  7. Ha–it is also so true!!!! Thanks for hanging with me Kathy–I’m sporadic now that I’m working. Just so much time and so much creative energy to be had. But I love capturing this stuff…
