ARE YOU ON STRIKE AGAINST YOUR NOSE? THEN WHY DO YOU PICKET?

A while back, I was trying to go to sleep but was kept awake by a long series of sneezes coming from downstairs. The strange thing about the sneezes was that they were separated by regular intervals of about six seconds. Finally I went downstairs to see what was going on, and I found Leo sitting at the computer (playing chess), tickling his nostrils with a toothpick because it "feels funny."

Other things Leo likes because they feel funny:
1) Rubbing Icy Hot under his eyes, then squirming around as they tear up;
2) Tweaking his tentacle-ish nose hairs (presumably for the same reason he puts toothpicks up there);
3) Staring at pictures of Dakota Fanning.

(No, not really number 3. Judging from the Hanson experience, I bet Haley Joel Osment is more his style.)
