In Up to His Fist

A number of years ago we explored what Pingers did in their cars. And appropriately, Ace High asked, “Why can’t [people] just pick their nose in the car like everybody else?” That comment rung in my head as I was in traffic yesterday.

I was driving with The Wife, and looked in my rearview mirror. And there was a guy driving, alone, picking his nose. Really picking – and using his pinky which, as an aside, seems like it’d be the least effectual finger for nose picking, no? He was in there a lot. We pulled up to a stoplight with him behind us, picking away. He stopped after a few moments.

The light turned green and we were continuing on our journey. I glanced in the rearview and yes, he was picking again. Big time, still with the pinky. But then, Pingers, he ate it. The pinky left the right nostril, he inspected it for a moment, and then put the pinky into his mouth. He then just drove like everything was normal.

Now, I’d like to state for the record that I do pick my nose from time to time. But I don’t do it in public, nor do I ingest anything that my own body considers a waste product. But this guy was really in there, and really quite disgusting.

The best part is that when the road opened up to two lanes, he passed me (on the right, of course) and shot me a look! It was as if to say, “Sorry, pal, but I don’t know why you’re not picking your nose!”

Nasty, nasty stuff.
