The short version: It’s about a nose-picking spree gone awry. Don’t they always?

The longer version: One rainy day, mom leaves on errands with a warning about two things that dad and the kids aren’t supposed to do while she’s gone. (1) Pick their noses. (2) Play ball in the house.

The Runaway Booger is what happens when they ignore both rules — at the same time.
