Don’t Eat Your Boogers (You’ll Turn Green)

Today I have decided to share an excerpt from Don’t Eat Your Boogers (You’ll Turn Green).

Goober McGee had a habit. Some kids chewed their fingernails, other kids stretched out their clothes. Goober ate his boogers. It wasn’t like he enjoyed it, but most of the time he didn’t have a tissue. So what was he supposed to do? He never dreamed it would become such an issue until one day…

“Ew! Don’t eat your boogers you’ll turn green!” his older brother, Sludge, said to him one day. Goober was reading a book on the couch and Sludge came in to watch some television.

“No I won’t! Mrs. Cherokee has never said anything in science class about that kind of stuff. You don’t know what you’re talking about.”

“Yes I do because it happened to me once. I had the same bad habit and I eventually turned green. My whole body turned green.” he said.

“I still think you’re pulling my leg.” Goober said.

“Just keep it up and you’ll see what happens.” Sludge said, walking into the kitchen. Goober popped another crusty one in his mouth and started another chapter. Not long after, it was time to go to bed.

The next morning Goober woke up and looked in the mirror. He still had the same coloring as yesterday. He looked at himself all over before he got dressed and he couldn’t find a speck of green. Sludge was ridiculous. Goober raced downstairs for a breakfast of blueberry waffles before he headed off to school.

Goober loved school. His favorite classes were English and Science. He loved playing with his friends outside and trading food in the lunchroom. And all through the day he ate his boogers. In homeroom, in Math class, on the playground and in the bathroom. The warning Sludge gave him kept ringing in his head, but he couldn’t stop. Some of his other friends did it so it really wasn’t that big a deal. It’s not like he was cheating on his homework or putting a whoopee cushion in the teacher’s chair. Sludge was just being over dramatic. Wasn’t he?

The next morning Goober woke up and looked in the mirror again. He couldn’t believe what he saw. He was a booger yellow shade of green-everywhere!

“Aaaaaaaauuuuuuuugh! Sludge!” he screamed.

Interview With An Author: Kristy Phillips










How long have you been writing?

3 years

Where do you get your ideas?

Every day life. Personal experiences and being a part in others’ lives. The ideas then form my writing led by the Holy Spirit.

What is your writing background?
So far, one published book titled “Everlasting Life.”
What was the process of writing Everlasting Life like?
The process was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve had. The words just flowed onto the paper. I wrote God’s words; what He spoke, I wrote. It was easy to compose, but the process itself of writing, typing, editing, and publishing took a lot of time.
What is the message you hope people will receive from it?
I want people to understand how much God loves them, and the reason for Jesus. I did not have a clear understanding for the majority of my life, and I’m hoping people will be educated about the intimacy we can have with God through the Holy Spirit in this book. The spiritual process is a journey of growing, not one that focuses on God being a harsh Judge.
When you’re not writing, how do you spend your time?
Family, friends, Health & Fitness: Running my Wellness business, Kickstart Fitness for Women, enjoying my own workouts, and teaching others about body, mind, spirit wellness. Also, doing artwork, Church & time with God.

What is your next book about?

It’s about Healing. Titled “Healing, the Aftermath”

What are some of your favorite books?

Joyce Meyer, Battlefield of the Mind.
Mark Batterson, Not a Fan.
What are you reading currently?
Steven Furtick, Unqualified.

Who are some of your favorite authors?

Joyce Meyer, Mark Batterson, Christine Caine.

What advice do you have for other authors?

If you feel you have a strong message on your heart, people need what you have to say. Don’t keep putting off the writing. Sit down and let it flow. Don’t overthink what you’re putting on paper. Get the thoughts out and go back and revamp later. All things are possible with God, so pursue your dreams and pray through.
