So far this school year, neither Mike nor I have had a cold…and for public school teachers, this is huge. HUGE! (We catch everything, at least once, each year.)
Librarians go from one disgusting keyboard to another all day long. All day. Every day. Last week, one teacher really grossed me out when she said a recent scientific study revealed that keyboards were more germ-laden and infectious than toilet seats.
Toilets? Worse than TOILETS???!!!
Thanks a lot, lady. Ever since she shared this news nugget, I keep imagining everyone's fingers furiously typing away on potty seats all day...ick…
So, anyway, partial credit for our unprecedented healthy streak must belong to the new Black & Decker juicer Mike got for Christmas…and all the fresh lime juice we’re enjoying in our tea and mojitos. (I *always* drink mojitos without the sugar…and often drink them without the rum, so please don’t go thinking we’re alcoholics or anything…)
So let’s all stock up on citrus…Punxsutawney Phil won’t make his prediction until 7:25 a.m. on February 2nd, and I’m betting he tells the good people of Gobbler’s Knob to expect six more weeks of winter. (Hmm. Having some zinc lozenges in the medicine cabinet might be a good idea…just in case the limes aren't as powerful as they seem…)
