Mucus ball vs. 9-lb. baby

Vic's man cold has really gotten out of control.

Last night, Vic told two more people about the mucus ball he blew out his nose over a week ago. He expressed more annoyance at my continued mockery of the mucus ball. He was irritated that I kept saying things like, "Oh, well you should have seen the bodily fluids involved in my c-sections!" I think he thought I was both one-upping his story and trivializing his health concerns. Maybe I was.

Finally, he exclaimed, "Oh! I'm sorry. Did YOU give birth via your nose?" (Oh yes, he did really say that.) I didn't say this aloud, but I wanted to point out that even a big booger is not comparable to a 9-lb. baby. (Actually, my first baby was 9 lb. 5 oz. and the second was 8 lb. 8 oz., but who's counting?)

I thought the title of this was supposed to be "yeah, but can you pick a baby out with your finger?"
