The Booger Pillow



by Seattle Jon (bio)

 My five year-old son came out of his room the other night, handed me his "booger pillow" and asked me to wash it for him.

"Wait," I said, "what is this?"
"It's my booger pillow," he helpfully replied, "Mom told me to put my boogers on the pillow and not to wipe them on the wall."

And he walked away, as if every five year-old kid has a booger pillow.

Or do they?

I vaguely remember getting a phone call from my mom a few months after leaving for college. She and dad had been rearranging my room and had literally found booger stalactites hanging from underneath my mattress. I don't remember putting them there ... but maybe that's because I didn't think it was a big deal while I was doing it.

Are there other parents out there who let their kids have booger pillows (or something similar)?
