He beat me last year – I was just one flick away from winning and I almost cried. But I wasn’t ‘bout to do that in front of everybody. I just grit my teeth and looked mad.
But just you wait … I’m gonna win this year. I’ve been practicin everyday. My mom says I’m gonna run outta boogers, but not me, I never do. She says I have to flick outside though. (Shhhh … I sneak when I take a bath. Did you know boogers float?)
And I can’t stand the way Picker Davey walks around with his nose in the air like <I>his</I> nose is the Trophy. Like he’s <I>king</I> or something. It makes me so mad I don’t even look at him.
I want the real one … the <I>real</I> trophy.
It’s the biggest, shiniest gold nose trophy I ever seen! I heard they use a real horse’s tail for the nose hairs, and then, there’s this green glop they use that feels just like real boogers. And the best part is, they use your own real finger to make a fake finger to stick up the nose! It-is-so-cool! You can even take it out and switch nose holes! Yeah … I sooo can’t wait.
I’m going to be the best picker-flicker Picker Town has ever seen. <I>I’m </I>gonna be the winner and get that trophy!
Besides … girls are better than boys – at <I>everything.</I> Pretty soon <I>he’s </I>gonna be calling <I>me</I> Queen Daisy.
Queen Picker Daisy.
Yeah … I like that.
Girls are best at everything anyway.
My mom says so. And she can prove it.
She’s got four shiny gold nose trophies on the shelf and one’s still got green glop in it. (My little brother found them one day when mom took them down to shine them up real pretty so she’s only got one left with boogers in it.)
She has them all lined up under a light and each finger is bigger than the other one and mine’s gonna to be right next to hers.
Yeah … my-mom-is-sooo-cool.
Picker Davey<B>’s not.</B> (tehe)
