I have a confession to make. I was caught today so I may as well just come out and warn everyone. Do not have PB&J sandwiches at my house. After I'm doing making them I lick the the top and the sides of the jar. :

I'm not the only one. What do you do when no one is watching?

We lick the spoons and spatulas while baking cakes and cookies.

We all pick our noses sometimes.

And I only wash my hands after using the bathroom if I actually got dirty.

I lick the top of the mustard. You know how when you close it, there is a little dap at the top that dries? I never have that.

That is probably the LEAST gross thing that I do though. I haven't showered since Saturday afternoon. It's Tuesday evening here.

I will pick your nose for you if I see a bogey hanging out. I'll just grab it for you. It alleviates the whole, "Did I get it? What about now?" thing that's really embarrassing.

I also lick my friends' faces, and if we're really close I will probably stick my tongue in your nose at least once. Or your ear.

And I am seriously, seriously not grossed out about anything. So I forget and have gross conversations while I'm eating with other people.

I only wash my hands after going to the bathroom if I know I'll be around someone who is really grossed out by people not washing their hands. Otherwise, wth do I care? I don't.

Jeca, I make you look like Bree on Desperate housewives!

I blow my nose in the shower.

If I'm eating a snack while also talking to dh and I need to pee, I'll continue the conversation (and the eating) while I go to the bathroom. It's a time saver.

ha! this is a great thread!
i can't wait to read it later and see all the other disgusting responses!

i admit it: i lick the spoon and put it back in the batter, jar or whatever... i just can't help myself and i'm afraid i'm teaching my kids the same habits!

also i work in an operating room and used to work in an ER and i love to share gory details. i usually forget that most people don't get off on blood and guts and grossness like it do....

so be warned... if you eat dinner with me there is no such thing as "polite" dinner conversation.

I double dip, lick the spoon/knife and then stick it back in the jar, eat brownie batter, pee and blow my nose in the shower (peeing on your feet before you shower, yes while standing in the shower lol, can help w/ athlete's foot)...actually I couldn't hold my pee in the shower if I tried, after four kids. I hardly ever wash my hands after using the bathroom, unless it is at someone else's house or a public restroom. If I had to wash my hands that much my skin would about fall off!

That's the kind of thing my husband would be totally cool with, too. Never thought to do it though. I think you may have just found me a few extra minutes in my day.

I am grossed out by licking things, so I don't do that.


However: I do pick my nose on a fairly regular basis as well as my ears.

Also don't always wash my hands after using the bathroom. I will if I am in a public restroom and someone else is there, just for show.

I have been known to pee in a pool.

I always pee in the shower, we all should, it could save a tree!




And I'm guilty of eating a snack or drinking my coffee while having a conversation, with DH or on the phone.

There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.

Oh Can I go now!!!!???!? I do all sorts of gross things and it feels so liberating to just let them hang out in public....

I pee in the shower (I also pee in the pool occasionally). I pick my nose and my ears.

I go days (maybe a week) w/out taking a shower AND sometimes I don't wear deodarant (I'm allergic to the aluminum in anti-persperants). I try and take note of when I smell outrageous, but I'm sure I don't always catch it.

I toot regularly and with impunity. (Once I asked DH what was different about being married than he expected and he said "all the gas?")

I use the toilet while I'm on the phone ALL THE TIME. We never close the doors to the bathroom while we're using it in our house anyway, so carrying on a conversation while you're going happens all the time.

I often will use my fingers to take bites of what I'm cooking, lick them and then get more food. Oh and I lick the spoon regularly.

My house is a hotbed of disgusting habits.....

I pee and blow my nose in the shower.

I chew toilet paper. (The clean stuff, not he used stuff) Weird, I know. It's compulsive - everytime I'm in the bathroom I grab a sheet and chew on it like it's gum. After a good chew, I chuck it in the trash. (I pee in the shower to make up for the toilet paper I chew.)

DH has on occasion found chewed TP on the counter. Yikes!

I always pee in the shower, and have DS pee before he gets out if he hasn't already. DH HATES it. Totally hates it. REALLY hates that I am teaching DS to do it.

That's all for now...

I groom my husband, pick off any little flakes, squeeze pimples.

Pick my nose, and check the results when I blow my nose.

Lick spoons if we're the only ones who'll be eating, but I don't put licked spoons into jars I'll be using to make stuff for other people.

Check my CM by just scooping some out with a finger, and check the TP after each wipe so I can see when I'm done wiping. (I don't do "skidmarks" thank you very much.)

Oh, and pee and blow my nose in the shower. Best time to do both since you reduce the nasty rubbing from handkerchiefs or TP that way. Especially nice if you've got a cold.

I love to pop zits and pimples and any kind of blemish or boil you might have. And I will do it for anyone, anywhere. There are fewer things as gratifying as a good pimple pop.

I only change the sheets on our bed every 6 weeks or so.

If one of the kids pees in our bed or has a leaky diaper, I look at the clock first to decide whether it would dry before I had to sleep in bed again or whether I actually need to change the sheets.

I love popping zits.

I pick my toes, and I used to rip the pinky toenails all the way out. Thankfully (due to pain and risk of infection) I cured myself of that.

I pick my nose. I think it's like twirling your hair...it's self comforting.

I also don't always wash my hands after I pee but I always wash my hands before I prepare/touch any food.

I pick zits. My favorite thing in the world is to tweeze DP. Pure bliss!

If the kids pee in the bed I throw a towel over it until morning.

I also don't change sheets frequently. I do wash them in hot now.

There are people on these boards that eat at my house, so I'm not admitting to anything.

Though if I make food for other people, I make doubly sure of hygiene (if I taste, I use a fresh spoon every time).

My house may appear REALLY clean, but don't open my microwave. I never clean it, and it is nasty. My mom cleans it once per year. It's my lazy tradition. There is all sorts of funk dried to the interior. I never let guests use it. I either do it for them or tell them it's broken.

That being said, it is super clean after mom does her annual scrub.

EWWWWW at all the people who pee in the pool! Remind me not to go swimming with you!

I pee in the shower, but the pool?!?
Oh, and don't tell him I told you, but once my parter peed in the shower WHEN I WAS IN THERE! EWWW! Although, I guess, not so bad, compared to swimming in other people's urine all summer... again,

I pee in the shower.

I don't see anything wrong with laying a towel on a pee spot until morning if dc were to have a diaper leak ( I change it in the morning, I dont see the problem).

I used to pass gas and blame it on DS when he was first born, , it was liberating.

I wash dishes only a few times a week :

That is all I have for now, I will probably remember more tomorrow.

Microwave cleaning is super easy. wet a washcloth squirt some soap on it, stick it in the microwave and nuke it for a few minutes. No matter how nasty your microwave is, it'll come clean in just a swipe or two. Trust me. I've had some nasties in mine.

Body, I've been more than patient. Please make a baby. Please?
