Today, I solved the mystery of the birthday boy whom my son doesn't seem to know.
Turns out he's in another class and just happens to have friends in my son's class. So the parents felt it was necessary to invite everyone from both classes.
On a separate note, when I met this kid, I was grossed out.
Green-yellow snot ball hanging out of his left nostril. It moved when he spoke. He never seemed to notice it, but it was about as big as a chimichanga.
I can handle a lot of stuff, but "boogers" make me sick.
End result: I think I'll decline, not because of the hygiene thing, but because my son shows no interest in the kid.
(Okay, I'll admit it--the honkin' piece of snot sealed the deal.)
