Little green lie

I have become VERY fed up with Joseph and his annoying nose picky habits. Time and time, and time again, we have told him to stop eating his boogers. Are boys just born this way? It is the grossest thing he has ever done.
Last night, after catching him in the act, yet again, I told him he had to stop or his ears will turn green. I didn't really except him to believe me. I guess, both Bethany and he know I don't tell them things that are untrue, because Joseph took it as the God's honest truth and Bethany shockingly questioned me about it. I could tell, she almost believed me.
I told Joseph, he had to get a tissue and wipe his nose from now on, no more eating his boogers. He left the room and came back with a baby wipe. He started to hand it to me, and I said, "No, Joseph you do it!" I couldn't believe it when instead of wiping his nose, he began frantically rubbing his ears with the wipe.
I did tell Bethany it wasn't true, but I just am not ready to break it to Joseph. If it's working, why tell him, right?

That has got to be the funniest story yet. The poor boy, thinking his ears will turn green. HA HA HA :)
