You knew I'd have to comment on it....

Probably only my family knows what a big time germophobe I am. I would rather fall than touch the escalator railings, and I use the handicap buttons to open doors in public places. I ask for salt and pepper packets instead of using the shakers on the restaurant tables, and the thought of eating at a buffet gives me the heebie jeebies. My kids call me Monk.

And I hate to say it... but this pandemic situation has been great for us hygiene freaks. I realized it last night as the Wal-Mart greeter wiped down the shopping cart handle before pushing it in my direction. Surfaces are wiped down regularly. Hand sanitizer is being provided in public places. There have been lessons about HOW to wash your hands on the news. People who don't cover their mouths when they cough or sneeze are actually shunned.

Now I will get the flu for sure for making light of it, but we're all gonna get it anyway....
