ewww, dirty… May 1, 2009

this is just me rambling about what i like to indulge in…a good scrub down.  i confess that i am a germaphobe to the core.  now that i’m raising a boy i have had to loosen up on my excessive need to wash wash wash my hands and his hands everytime we touch stuff in public places.

not anymore!!!!  once again, germaphobes will get the chance to indulge in what makes them most comfortable.  sanitizing gel, soap and water, hand wipes, clorox wipes and the like will be in full effect.  say it with me, “sanitizer in da house!”

in case you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t heard – there is a swine flu going around.  though it is said to not be as wide-spread as in certain parts of mexico right now, but it’s out there nonetheless.  it sord of reminds me of mrsa the superbug.  this strain of infectious whatever is unique and relentless.  it has such an affect on people that they are now deciding to wash their hands properly (hopefully).  and in case you didn’t know that there is a proper way to wash your hands…there is.  use soap, water, and scrub for at least 15-20 seconds, duh:).  by the way, have you ever noticed that health care workers usually do a quick in and quick out when they wash their hands?  this has always skived me out a bit but maybe it’ll change a little, hopefully. especially because they touch all over you and in some cases all in you.  ewwwww.  

i don’t even think that i’m bothered much that there is this swine flu.  i think that i’m more into  the fact that it’s probably going to push people to be a bit more aware and more vigilant with their hygiene.  ya know?

i must admit, that i would much rather give a hug than give a handshake.  sometimes after shaking someone’s hand i immediately want to go and wash my hands or pull out my miniature bottle of sanitizer.  this in no way has anything to do with the person whose hand i may have touched.  in general, i’ve always been grossed out by shaking hands and touching stuff that I think is gross.  this is a bit over the top i know…but i just can’t help it.

i do think that i’ve done a pretty good job (depending on who you ask) with keeping the urge to want to spray myles down when he comes home from school or from a play date, or from the park, or from the store, or from the backyard, or from church, or from a restaurant and so on and so forth.  don’t look at me like that!  i know that i’m not the only one.  i’ve seen some of you other mommas out there pulling out your sanitizer as you attempt to halt any spread of dirty germs contracted from all the sweet face little carriers.  after the sanitization, i know you probably even smile a little figuring that you may have just avoided…dun, dun, dun – the germies!

swine flu or not….just wash or sanitize your hands on a regular! that’s all i’m saying.  no one wants your cooties.  you know
