Tic-Tac-Nose...(Part Deux)

A couple of years ago I wrote this post when Zach stuck a Tic-Tac up his nose while I was driving down the interstate. I thought he had learned his lesson. (Because apparently peppermint Tic-Tacs burn when thrust up ones nostril) I thought that we wouldn't be going down this road again. I thought the days of sticking things up his nose were days of yorn. I thought. A few weeks ago we were here at home. I was cleaning up from supper and Zach was relaxing on the couch before bedtime. I came into the living room after washing the dishes to check on him and he was setting on the couch crying. I asked him what the problem was and when he responded it was with a voice that immediately sent me back to that summer day on the interstate. The nasal voice. His response was "My gum is stuck in my nose". He was so calm! He was crying a little but not the hysterical cry that you would imagine, more like a quite little teary. After close investigation I discovered that his bubble gum was, in fact, stuck way up one side of his nose! You want to know what the trouble with bubble gum is? IT STRINGS!! My poor tweezers will never be the same again. Well, after much pulling and blowing and "I swear Zach if you ever stick something up your nose again it will stay there until you graduate High School!" the gum finally came out. So, I only really have question: How in the world does one get gum in his nose? If you guys can figure that out, well then your better than me cause friends, I have no idea!
