The Snot Spot


I sang on worship team this weekend. I wore a black jacket. When I got home I took my jacket off and there it was. The biggest snot spot I have ever seen. It was on my left side - just beneath the pocket. And it wasn't just a spot. No, no. It had... contours. Raised surfaces. Texture, if you will. Good grief you could have picked it off me from 5 feet away. Kids. They're always with you.

Maybe you should wear that jacket every time you go to Starbucks...that should jar their memories when they see you! (Look-it's that "snotty" lady coming again...quick get her a red eye and get her out of here fast!).

Snot spots and barf stains are the true markings of a loving parent.

THANK YOU! You just settled our bet. I saw that on you during the service and I said to Gina, "look at that big snot spot on Heidi." To which she replied, "No that couldn't be a snot spot on Heidi, she's too classy and put together, it's probably some artsy,-fartsy brooch she's wearing." Now we can put that one to rest!

Ha! That reminds me of the scene in "As Good As It Gets" when Helen Hunt has the green goo on her shoulder...ruined her whole night! Ah, but green gooey snot is a badge of honor for all mothers! Be glad it was snot and not barf...no aroma!
