BIG MISTAKE!

Tomorrow is payday.  Today I still had $6.34 in my checking account so I decided to clear it out and make room for the new crop of cash.  On the way home from the pond I stopped off at 7-11 and picked up some Pop Rocks for the kids.  That wasn't the mistake though.

No, the mistake was when I wondered out loud what would happen if someone got a Pop Rock stuck up their nose.  The next thing I know Rocky is informing me that 'Nothing happens'.  Not sure that I was hearing what I thought I had heard, I looked to where she was sitting on the couch.  Only now she was laying back, with the pack of Pop Rocks held up to her nose.

"It doesn't work" she declared.  "Maybe it will work in a runny nose..." That's when I put my foot down and ended the experiment. 

Edit:  Okay, so the kids don't listen to me and yes, Pop Rocks DO pop in the nose if there is enough moisture present.  Note to self, do not buy the kids any more Pop Rocks, and for goodness sakes, don't 'wonder' out loud!

For God's sake don't make them laugh. If Coke comes out their nose their heads could blow off!

Oh I remember my kids loved that stuff too. Tiny little explosions going off in your mouth...whoever invented that? Had to be wacked out to do it.  Wasn't there a commercial years ago where they said everything goes up his nose?  Sandi

there were rumors of kids eating pop rocks and drinking cokes and having their stomachs explode back when they first came out in the 70's.  but they were rumors.  there were alot of children in the hospital because they had alot of bubbles in their bellies and they probably wished they would die, lol.  but they remade them so they wouldn't be as harmful.........so unless the kids get them stuck in their sinus cavities, i think you are ok.................

have a blessed day dorn..........

I've been told, though I don't know personally, that for some reason they're also sold at SPENCER'S, an adult novelty shop in the mall.  Things to make you go hmm.  Don't wonder about that one OUTLOUD either. lol
