    While preparing for a family outing, my 7-year-old son was picking his scooter up off the driveway to place in the back of our van when he suddenly dropped it back on the ground. "YUCK!!" he yelled, "Stupid goose POOPED on it!" He shows me the palm of his hand that touched the goop -- then proceeds to wipe his hand down the front of his shirt!!!

    "NOOO!!" I yelled at him "Don't wipe it on your shirt! Wipe it in the grass, wash it in the hose, find a paper towel! You're too old to be using your clothes as napkins or tissues any more! Gooood grief!"

    Moments later Mister comes out, and I tell him what HIS son did, and tell him to have a talk with this child who shares both his genes and his chromosone pattern. I overheard him scolding the boy: "Son, when you get duck poop on your hand, don't wipe it on your clothes! That's gross! Now you have to go change your shirt!"

    "Da-A-add!" he replies, stretching the name into three syllables, "it was GOOSE poop!"

    I can see this boy is well on his way to thinking like a teenager, and some day will be able to reason like a Man...[​IMG]

    Once, in a biology class, we were sent out with swabs to collect samples of stuff that we could culture bacteria from. The ickiest sample came from the bottom of someone's shoe. The 'cleanest'? Yup, you guessed it.....Goose Poop! [​IMG]

    Well........since we have 4 boys and 2 girls..........I can tell you that in our case it is almost always the boys rubbing something on themselves and then saying "but mom, I was just wiping my hands!" [​IMG] [​IMG]

    And I know you probably don't want to hear this, but my "boys" run from 30 to 9! So it doesn't get any better as they age! [​IMG]

    Oh and DH is 60 and will still do the same thing LOL! "hunny, I don't know why I smell like (diesel, gas, poo, etc.........) until I mention his clothes............... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Good luck and thanks for allowing me to feel a tiny bit normal......good to know others deal with this too!!!
