There have been scientific studies done about this.
There have been books written about this.
This is not a new revelation and yet even though I know this, it never fails to surprise me how different boys are versus girls.
Boys are gross and weird.
If you don’t agree take a look at my case and point:
The other day my 6 year old son is coughing and sputtering. I ask him if he is okay and what is going on. He replies that he is fine and is just training himself to be able to hold the dangling thing in his throat without coughing and gagging.
Insert brief moment of silence while my mind races wildly.
Next I explode with, “What? What? You are grabbing your uvula? GRABBING YOUR UVULA? UVULA?? Why would you want to condition yourself to hold your uvula without coughing or gagging? Please stop grabbing your uvula!!”
I rest my case.
