2. I have coughed every day for years.
Edited on Sat Jan-12-13 03:46 AM by No Elephants
One day, to my great surprise, I woke up from a coma with a breathing tube in my throat and have not stopped coughing since. No one knows why.

Anyway, I know the cough is not contagious but, when I go to a hospital or a clinic they ask people who have a cough to wear a face mask so I always wear one. (At least if they have the soft paper kind, preferably the yellow pleated kind. I can't breathe in the cardboard one.) f

Michael Jackson wore a cloth one a lot.

Many in China wear them on the street in cities because of just so many people crowding each other.

So, you could give that a try. Maybe wear one sparkly glove, too. Then people will assume you are a Jackson fan and won't ask a lot of questions.

As far as the friction, I wonder if it is the heat killing the germies or is it that we are crushing the bitty things to death? The report of the study that I read in the news did not say what about rubbing our hands was lethal. So, I try to keep both in mind.

I hate having to associate washing my hands with killing the things, though. I know they might otherwise kill us, but they don't kill us on purpose. They are just being what they are, whereas we spend a lot of effort to kill them intentionally. Lyson, Cloro, whatever.

Can't we all just get along?



P.S. I hope you don't get sick; and if you do, it's only a weak cold and not the flu. But, it is important to keep yourself generally healthy and rested so that, when a germ comes your way, your system can fend it off.

I don't want you to be sick, DD! I need regular doses of your "nice."
