LIFE

Dear Carol

"My friend picks her nose. Should I tell her this isn't OK?"

Dear Carol,
I have a friend who picks her nose.  She is a sweet kid and a great friend, but I worry about her habit.  I don’t want people to judge her based on it, and I know of at least one person who has.  She’s embarrassing herself.  Should I tell her?
—Tactful Teller

Dear Tactful Teller,
You have options: 1) Do nothing. 2) Say “I saw a kid yesterday who was way too old to be picking his nose.  It was kinda disgusting.” Or, 3) Next time she does it in front of you, make a weird face and say, “Ew, don’t do that.” Proceed with caution, but it is a favor to make her aware of a habit that could bring ridicule to her. (Please, don’t say anything in front of others.)
