For some reason, Judah has chosen as his symbol of manhood and maturity, his daddy's hairy nose. It's not unusually hairy-- just your typical man-nose. But it fascinates the boy. He talks about wanting hairy noses all the time. Witness the following conversation this evening...
Judah: Daddy stands up when he kinkles.
Me: Yes, he does.
Judah: Daddy has hair in his nose, do you have hair in your nose, Mama?
Me: Well, a little bit (honestly at all cost to personal vanity)
Judah: Do you have booguhs?
Me: Not right now...
Judah: I have booguhs in mah nose. (pause) I wish I had hair in mah nose.
Judah: To cover up the booguhs!
So that's what it's for! I always wondered...
