When a sneeze or laugh causes snot to come hurling out of your nose, and you have to gracefully clean it off your shirt.
The kind you do in a car, when no one’s looking. Also can mean automatic pick, the one you do when your not even thinking about it, at work, while talking to a co-worker, during a meeting….
Pick Your Brains
Done in private, this is the one where your finger goes in so far, it passes the septum.
Deep Salvage Pick
Reminiscent of the deep sea exploration to find the Titanic ship, you probe deep into your nasal passages.
When fingers, and even your thumb, just aren’t enough to get the job done to your satisfaction.
When you have been digging for nuggets hours upon hours and suddenly you hit the jackpot! Excitement only equalled by winning the lottery.
When you’re sad, and the only way to fill the void is to pick so hard and fast that the agony overcomes your feeling of remorse and depression.
Pick And Save
When you have to pick it quickly, just when someone looks away, and then you pocket the snot so they don’t catch on to what you did.
Pick And Flick
Snot now becomes a weapon against your sister and others in range around you.
Pick And Stick
You wanted it to be a “Pick and Flick,” but it stubbornly clings to your fingertip.
Pipe Cleaner Pick
The kind where you remove a piece of snot so big, it improves your breathing by 90%.
Pick A Lot
What we would call abnormal amounts of picking. Anything in the three digit realm we consider a bit too much for a 24 hour time frame.
When you’re by yourself and you uninhibitedly twist your forefinger into your nostril with childlike joy and freedom.
And the best part is, there’s no time limit!
Camouflaged Kiddie Pick
When, in the presence of other people, you wrap your forefinger in a tissue, then thrust it in deep and hold back
Fake Nose Scratch
When you make believe you’ve got an itch but you’re really trolling the nostril edge for stray boogers.
Making A Meal Out Of It
You do it so furiously, and for so long, you’re probably entitled to dessert.
