Discussion in the car from 3 days ago:
Frizzle: Mom, tell me a really gross story.
Mom: OK, but it's really, really gross, so be prepared. There was this girl who was at a conference talking to another girl she had just met. This girl was cute, dressed nicely and very chatty. Well, as she was talking, the girl stuck her finger in her ear and dug around for a bit then pulled something out with her fingers, rolled it in between her fingers and stuck it in her pocket. OK, the first girl thought, that was weird but whatever. Then the other girl did it again but this time she stuck her finger in her MOUTH! OH! SO! GROSS!
Frizzle: That's it?
Skippy: That isn't gross.
Puppy: Yeah, that is nothing.
My sister (mom) and I just looked at each other, very grossed out and thoroughly disgusted that the 3 kids sitting behind us in the car didn't even find this even remotely gross. What is this world coming to? Because that is VERY gross!!
I am so grateful for a free night to finish my new novel. It's riveting!
