My son and I have had this drainage, coughy gunk that apparently is going around right now, where you don’t really feel sick but you sure sound like you could cough up a lung. . . or three.
So my son was having a coughing fit one morning that sounded really wet, and I asked him if he managed to get up anything.
He said, “Yeah, like snot?”
Yup that’s it. I promptly told him that he didn’t need to swallow said snot but spit it out instead.
And he responded, “No thanks. I like the way it tastes.”
Ewww. . . out of the mouths of babes (or down their throats).
