Yesterday we had Stake Conference in a big basketball auditorium on the campus of Texas State University. They actually created a new stake and then added wards from several other stakes to make up for the units we had lost to the new stake. Very interesting stuff.

Anyway, as we were sitting in our padded seats that were way more comfy and roomy than the Marriott Center (not a judgement, just an observation), we pulled out our small tupperware container full of treats for Ty (pretzels, Life cereal, etc.). As we were trying to listen, Ty was eating, occasionally putting a piece of pretzel or cracker up to our mouths. Absently, trying to hear the speaker, we would open our mouths and let him feed us. Hey--it kept him quiet, okay?

All of a sudden I hear a whisper, "Sally! Sally!"

I turn and see Brad washing down water from a water bottle, with a look of sheer panic on his face. I can tell he wants to scream, or at the very least bolt from his chair.

"What?!" I say, a little worried that he's about to make a scene.

Only because of his sheer determination, I can tell Brad has calmed himself down and with one last shudder, returns to normal.

"What?!" I whisper again, curious by now as to what caused his little "episode."

"Ty was feeding me little pieces of cracker and pretzel, when I noticed he put something else in my mouth that had a different texture. I ate it, and then asked him what it was."

That was when Ty looked up at his daddy with a big grin and said, "It's a booger!"


  1. Oh sick! I would have barfed right there. In fact, I'm thinking about it just reading your post.
    Kudos to Brad for keeping it together.

    That is just too funny. Your poor husband.

  3. holly cow...i hate boogers...and i almost threw up reading this. so sad. gross. that's all i can say!

  4. hahahaha That is hilarious. I feel for Brad, but oh man. hehe

  5. oh man!!! That's funny, but not so fun for Brad!! I can only imagine!!!

  6. That's incredibly sick. I thought you were going to share some unexpected spiritual insight from stake conference so it was REALLY a shock to read that.

  7. Bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha! If true life gross booger stories are wrong, I don't want to be right.

  8. I might have thrown up if I were Brad! I'm impressed he was able to keep it together as good as he did! EWWWW!!

    On a separate note, how funny that we were both closet Neil Diamond fans : )

  9. What would he have done without the water to wash it down???? This is cracking me up!
    And really....what's up with the chairs in the Marriot Center anyway? I hated sitting in them with my knees up to my chin and permanent dents in my shins from the chair in front of me! HELLO!!!

  10. That is the funniest thing I have heard all day!! (maybe week!) Hello Sally, I just got your invite on and had to check out your blog. Your little boy has got so big, and handsome I might add. Please add me to your friends and check out my blog at . It is so good to hear from you. Your lake is beautiful by the way! I want to be there now. xoxo,Ashley Clawson

  11. You just gave Lee and I the best laugh!!! I love little boys! We both feel so bad for Brad...but what a great story!

  12. I can't believe Ty did that! That is the best story:0) I read an article in the newspaper recently that said that boogers are packed with natural immunizations. I don't know how, but maybe that Ty booger will make Brad stronger. ( I am really not kidding about the article.)

  13. Sharing is caring! (As the Care Bears say)

    I love this!
