Do you ever spit or pick your nose in public? What about cleaning your teeth with a toothpick?
Does the inside of my car count as “in public?” Then, yes. Because I like to imagine that I can see out of my car but no one can see into it. No, I do not have tinted windows. Not even a little bit.
And so, at the stop light, if you look over at me, it’s possible you could see me picking my nose. You know why? Because there was something in there that’s bothering me and I don’t drive around with a box of tissues. Deal with it.
I don’t spit in my car. That’s gross. I spit outside my car. And if I have a cold and am actively coughing things up, I will spit in public. I know there are places where it is illegal to spit on the sidewalk. But, hey, I’m a rebel.
I never use toothpicks. Except in amazing balancing acts involving forks and salt shakers. Don’t ask, you’re not ready.
What about you? Do you do any of these potentially embarrassing actions in public? Let me know in the comments.
