In case you haven’t noticed we are in the middle of a flu season that is nothing to sniff at. And if you happen to be sniffing I suggest you get yourself far away from the still healthy among us before the random Lysol assaults begin…and they will.
In such times when cities are declaring epidemics and germs are spreading at a rampant pace it seems like a good time to freshen up on the basics of staying disease free.
First step, be afraid, be very afraid. Germs lurk around every corner (and probably all over it to). Every surface could be your last before drifting into the haze of influenza wrought illness.
That means public spaces especially. You don’t know where that door handle’s been (other than right where it is), why would you touch it? Better grab a paper towel to pull the door open, and we’d hate to infect ourselves by venturing too near a trash can, so let’s just drop it on the floor, someone will pick it up. Their immune system can take it.
Now, run back to the safety of your bubble.
Just remember this: Fear. Fear will keep you healthy.
In all seriousness: wash your hands…and using your phone in the restroom is gross.
