So, where's the genie?


I swear, sometimes I think I have the goofiest kids in the universe. This morning Nathan is in my bathroom and sees Rick's neti pot on the sink. He laughs and says something about a genie. I'm not paying much attention, but soon after Neil comes in and looks around. He leaves and goes back to Nathan who says, "Look for the lamp!" Sure enough, Neil is back in the bathroom, giggling.

When I was looking for a neti pot image to post on here, I was totally surprised by how many people have posted pictures of themselves online while using a neti pot. GROSS! I don't know about you, but I personally don't need to see someone rinsing out their sinus passages with streams of snot coming out their nose. Now, I realize these things work great and some people love their neti pots. However, it's not pleasant to look at.

I suppose I should explain to the boys what it is, just in case they start rubbing the lamp in hopes of a genie coming out and granting them three wishes. I wonder what they would do if I said, "That's not a genie! It's a greenie!" Good grief! What would the Aladdin say?

  1. OK I'll admit it I've never heard of a netti. It does rather look like a genie lamp though. I can see a genie coming in handy a time or two. ;)

  2. I was going to ask, "What the heck is a neti pot?" But then I read on about the sinus stuff...
    Yeah, the boys don't want any wishes granted from that thing!
