The Green Paradox

I’ll admit that I was no whizz at physics, but I’m pretty sure there was a fundamental basic principle: A container can only hold as much as it can hold.

So explain to me how a tiny little nose can produce so much snot! I was tempted to grab the kitchen measuring spoons and begin my own volume experiment. Small nose, small nasal cavity, enormous amount of booger.

Theory #1 – My son exists in two alternate universes at once but all of the snot dribbles out in only one of them (typically it’s the universe I’m in).

Theory #2 – When my back has been turned, my son has stuck a miniaturized tardis up his nose. Now his tiny nostril has a lounge room the size of the Taj Mahal. And there’s an over-achieving snot monster squatting there.

I’m going to contact the CSIRO and make sure that there is some sort of research grant currently working towards un-puzzling this enigma.

In fact, I’ve got one more phlegm mystery for them to solve. Why does my boy only wipe his nose on my shoulder? Never the tissue, never his own clothes. Just my sleeves.

    I love this website. I often feel like the forgotten dad…I am so much more… she does not even touch me anymore. Is it because I smell like baby vomit?
