A Curiousity

My six year old daughter came up with a new phrase this morning, at least new to me. After trying to clear her throat numerous times, she said, "Mommy, I have booger throat."

Growing up, my family called that "Skrocky"

How 'bout you. What do you call "it"?

"Skrocky?" That's great! My husband is always clearing his throat; I'll have to use that word for it. It's even better than "snurgly," in my opinion! Where do people get these words, anyhow?

Oh yeah... onomatopoeia. :)

I think booger throat shows a precocious understanding of the way the nasel passage effects the health of the throat. Booger throat, that's it from now on around our house.
