Monday Teeny Poll


I asked about uniforms in public schools last week, and an overwhelming number of you, a full 78%, felt it was a great idea.  I agree.  When Target carries “uniform” clothes, then you pretty much know almost anyone can afford them.  I also went to parochial school for twelve years, and it simplified life so much to not have to worry about what I was going to wear the next day.  I think in the long run, it also saved my parents money, since those dang wool skirts I had to wear lasted for-EVER.

As far as today’s question, I want to find out how germophobic you are when it comes to your home and/or office.

    But all the real germophobe hypochondriacs I know consider themselves quite reasonable. I was just chatting with a man in England who is freaked out about the fact his father lets the dishes dry naturally; he’s worried this will allow coliform bacteria to grow on them. I said if his tapwater was really contaminated with human fecal waste, moist dishes was the least of his problems.

    I’m not really all that germophobic, and I highly doubt anybody would ever call me a neat freak, but I am obsessed about things being organized. I could have a veritable herd of dust bunnies stampeding across the living room floor, but a messy closet or disorganized cupboards will drive me stark raving mad. My sister is just the opposite — her closets and cupboards look like 1980’s-era Beirut, and she has about 20 unfolded loads of laundry piled up in a teetering tower on the loveseat in her bedroom, but her floors and counters are always shining.

    I do always make sure to wipe down the counters with a bleach solution after dealing with raw chicken or ground beef, though. Then again, I haven’t cleaned this keyboard in months. So we all have our blind spots.

    I’m very careful about food, especially uncooked food, and especially especially uncooked meat. When I’m working with uncooked meat, I sanitize everything, I wash my hands repeatedly (without touching the faucet handles with my bare hands, I use a tissue or something and then clean them anyway) and I make sure nothing else has gotten in contact. I keep separate cutting boards for meat and other foods. And I never get the “stomach flu” or other transient stomach upsets. I’m much more laid back about ordinary dust and dirt though. Or I was until my daughter got to the crawling-and-putting-everything-in-her-mouth stage. But I’m sure I’ll go back to my old lazy ways when she gets older!
