May I Douse You With Lysol?


We have been crazy throughout history!


Start printing these bibs!

My big plans today consist of stockpiling hand sanitizer and Lysol. I have already perfected the art of opening doors with my foot and using my elbow at cash stations, now everyone seems to be acting as crazy as me! I'm not alone.

Here's an excerpt from "The Audacity of Hope," where then-Sen.. Obama wrote of his first meeting with President Bush.
“Obama!” he said, shaking my hand. “Come here and meet Laura. Laura, you remember Obama. We saw him on TV during election night. Beautiful family. And that wife of yours – that’s one impressive lady.”

“We both got better than we deserve, Mr. President,” I said, shaking the First Lady’s hand and hoping that I’d wiped any crumbs off my face.

The president turned to an aide nearby, who squirted a big dollop of hand sanitizer in the president’s hand.

“Want some?” the president asked. “Good stuff. Keeps you from getting colds.” Not wanting to seem unhygienic, I took a squirt.

I am the same way especially when traveling and having to stop to use the restroom. I always prefer to have a paper towel to dry with so I can use it to open the door when I leave. Not everyone washes their hands. I keep the hand sanitizer in my car for all occasions. Shopping carts are the worst.

Some of our local grocery stores even have sanitizer wipes next to the grocery carts. Even chairs at restaurants can be quite ugly as well as the edges of the tables. Ewwww.....

We just all need to be aware of those who are not.

great post.

I love the picture of the baby piggy!

And all I ask is that nobody flushes a public toilet with their foot. Blech. Those handles are made for use by HANDS. Get a tissue (from the toilet tissue dispenser?) to protect your saintly fingers when you flush instead of adding to the YUCK on the HANDle with whatever's on your shoe. kthx.

I suppose if one lived the life of a politician or celebrity, they would have to swear by the stuff.

Personally, I think drinking chocolate vodka with Dr.Pepper chases away anything sinister, that's what I'm telling myself tonight.
