Cool New Balloon Trick

Still no luck getting our technical problems fixed. The phone company thinks it's Blogger. Great. In the meantime, here is how my morning started:

Julius: Mom, do you want to see me shoot balloon air out through my nose?

Me: Um.... Yeah, I guess so. (Honestly, I really wasn't sure I wanted to, but was trying to be polite because I like him to have good self-esteem and think his mother cares about Stupid Boy Tricks.)

Julius proceeds to blow the balloon up, then release the balloon and somehow directing the air to shoot out his nose. (How does he even do that? And without gagging himself or falling unconscious which is what I would do.)

This has the added bonus (for him) of long strings of mucus to fling out forcefully, waving like slimy pennants at a windy stadium.

I shriek and dive under the table yelling, "OH THAT IS SO GROSS. STOP DOING THAT! GO BLOW YOUR NOSE. NO... WAIT WAIT... you HAVE TO go show your dad that trick!"

About half an hour later we did a retrospective of the event. He came and sat next to me, a thoughtful look on his face and said, "I can't believe I can shoot balloon air out my nose."

I said, "Yeah, me either."
