Re: Germ Culture

Thats the benefit of having baby gates up to keep the kitchen clear of 2 year olds and the dog and cat collection.

Otherwise I'd be constantly enjoying a simulation of that old high school prank where someone crouches down behind your knees while someone else gives you a shove, substituting a dog for the crouching person and working in collusion with the two year old trying to see what you're doing on the stove.

With my dog, the food never makes contact with the floor.

Wouldn't want it anyway what with all the cat and dog hair down there.
I was once advised to get a black haired dog because then you can see
the hair in the butter.

Re: Germ Culture

I'm with you, Al.

My cat is not allowed on the counter, but I catch him there anyway occasionally.
So, I won't eat anything that hits the floor or counter...Don't leave the butter out.

I will eat out of the pan if I'm the only one eating it. Some stuff I cook, my son doesn't eat .

I wash my hands requently and change the kitchen towel regularly.

I went through nursing school in the early 70s and learned about germs then. I've always been more particular than most my friends. Oh well, I'm rarely sick, so it seems to be working.

Re: Germ Culture

just so you know that i use the information i gather from this forum in every day life: i was having lunch with brother & sil this afternoon. sil didn't finish all her soup and asked if i wanted to finish it. at first i gave my usual wise-ass response in my best oliver twist, "mmmmm, backwash soup. please sir, may i have some more." but sil got offended (it's been like 15 years, she really ought to know me by now) and said, "but your brother would eat it."

quickly referencing the early retirement forum i told sil how their bodies are used to sharing bacteria but it would be bad for my system. she seemed satisfied with that. of course i still prefer the "ewwwww, backwash!" response.
