Says something about my family

Son was leaving for and evening out. He just applied pepper to the inside of his nose, to close his eustachian tube. (Procedure looked weird but was done on rec from ENT.

I offered to 'beat him if he sneezes' he did not know the reference so I had to quote the whole thing. How did he miss it? I remember reading Alice to him?

He left the house with a bunch of pepper in a twist of aluminum foil.

"I would give you a snuffbox if I had one--" I said.

He looked at me in surprise. "I assumed you had a snuffbox," he said. "Seems the kind of thing you would have."

In the words of the wonderful Lena Lamont, "Doesn't everybody?"

you obviously didn't speak roughly to your little boy when you read him Alice :D
