We had a (not so) lovely case of strep throat in the house on Friday. Besides the normal upheaval, my germaphobe brain latched onto the doctor’s “highly contagious” warning.
I knew that, so why did she have to say it???
Henceforth, I was freakishly aware of everything my daughter touched for the next twenty-four hours and everything that might have touched something she touched.
So, even though I tried to be sure that each of her refills came in a different cup, I did decide to disinfect the water-dispenser push-thingys.
Just in case.
And as I did, I saw how they really weren’t white anymore. And how easily they became white again with just a slight amount of effort.
How exactly did I not notice that before?
There you go. Another detail for my 31 Days of Details.
