The backstory: For years, JT could not blow his nose. No matter how hard I tried, the skill escaped him. By the time he was 10, he figured it out but not before multiple episodes of heartache and frustration. I learned how to blow my nose a long time ago but my recent nose surgery left me unable to blow my nose. I found it annoying.
Mama: Oh my God, I wish I cold just blow my damned nose.
JT (calm and disinterested): Why? I couldn't blow mine for years and I survived quite nicely.
