I haven't laughed this hard all day.
"Gabe and Anne were having a long, convoluted discussion about the saying "You can pick your friends, you can pick your nose... but you can't pick your friends nose" as I cooked. There was a lot of face-poking involved.
Unable to contain myself any longer, I stuck my head into the room and said: "You know, you can pick your battles. You can pick your nose. You can pick your friends. You can't pick your relatives. However, due to an arcane bylaw in the Houston charter, you can battle your friends for the right to pick your relatives' nose."
They were stunned into silence for a full thirty seconds."
