papa: elise! come here!
papa: asher, tell mama what you just told me.
asher: boogers are good for me!
*he sticks a booger in his mouth
me: ewww! what?!
papa: he told me that it was ok if he eats his boogers because his mama told him that boogers are good for him.
me: haha! i never said that, asher john!
as clever as the mama-said-it's-good-for-me argument is, stop eating your boogs, dude.
