Blow Hot, Blow Cold

It Comes As Nose Surprise

A school in England is teaching pupils how to blow their noses. The children, aged 5 to 11, at Broad Oak Primary School in Manchester have been shown a DVD telling them the right and wrong ways to act when they have a cold. But one parent condemned the exercise as "a complete waste of time".

Not that surprising...sorry...cos when w etook the kids to burger king very reluctantly one day for lunch...I totally lost it when the girl at the counter proceeded to collect our order, and blew her nose on her top...I shrieked STOP..dont touch another thing and shouted for the manager...who told me she had told the girl to change her top...

sNOT the point!!!!

needless to say l shopped them to the health people...I was apoplectic with anger...

Two out of my four grandchildren cannot blow their noses!

My children might know how to blow but opt for wiping and picking. So much for education!

OMG...there are certain actions that will make me so sick that I am just sick! Most of them concern the nose...I believe I had an embroidered hankie attached to my fingertips from birth...

Funny how they never need instruction on how to pick them, eh?
