Summary: Fritz has a cold with a runny nose that needs to be wiped, but it HURTS…
Author’s note: Special thanks to my beta Kat for pinking this for me.

“Come’re, Fritz. Let me wipe your nose; it’s running,” Bernd said to his three year old son. He had a handful of tissues, and he was hoping Fritz would cooperate this time and let him wipe his nose.

Fritz, however, wanted nothing to do with the tissues. He had a cold and his poor nose was all red from everyone wiping it. Even using his sleeve made his nose hurt. He shook his head and did his best to sniff it all back in.

“Eww… Don’t do that! Now come’re!”

“No!” Fritz looked up at his father, his eyes quickly welling up with tears. “It hurts, Vati!” He pouted.

“I know, but we need to wipe the boogers away.”

“Don’t wanna!” Fritz shook his head, backing away slightly.

Bernd quickly thought it over. “Okay, what if I gave you the booger busters and you did it yourself?” He held up the tissues and smiled, all the while praying Fritz would agree.

“Hunh?” Fritz sniffed again.

“Booger busters! They’re supposed to suck up all the boogers that’re making your nose hurt.”

Fritz blinked. “Yeah?” He sat up straighter. He had the feeling Vati was up to something, but he just could not figure out what.

“Yeah!” Bernd held the tissues out to his son. “Try it.”

Fritz took them. He patted his nose with a tissue. It was still sore, but not as bad as when one of the adults wiped it for him.

“Try under your nose, Fritz.” Bernd pulled a tissue from the box and rubbed under his own nose.

Fritz did as he was bidden.

“Keep going, and take another one.” Bernd did his best to encourage his son.

Fritz grabbed another tissue and wiped his nose. It took several tries, but he managed to get all the snot cleaned up. When he was finished, he handed his father a big wad of snotty tissues.

“Uh, thanks, Fritz.” Bernd got up to throw them out and wash his hands.

A few minutes later, Fritz sneezed. “Vati, I need more booger busters.” He sniffed.

Bernd handed him the box of tissues. “There you go. Hold to them until I get back with Opa’s wastepaper basket.” He got up and headed into the den, where his father’s desk was, and grabbed the wastepaper basket. He beamed at his son, who happily put all his used tissues in it.

Several days later, when Bernd caught the cold, Fritz brought him a box of tissues. “Here’s the booger busters, Vati.”
