    Changing Habits

    With the flu in mind I've been watching people interact with each other. All the hand shakes, hi 5's, hugs.
    The tv had a Halloween store segment and people were trying on rubber masks, checking themselves out, and putting them back on the rack.
    I thought of the tradition of blowing out birthday candles.
    How some churches share the communion goblet.
    Public restroom door handles.
    Sick people in denial and won't go home.

    Donald Trump doesn't like to shake hands but prefers the Japanese tradition of bowing.
    Maybe it's time to rethink our habits.
    Tracers work both ways.

    I get the pleasure of working in schools. Nothing better even during cold season than to see a snot factory all but blow his nose in his hands, wipe it on his pants and open the door I'm ab out to go through that I need to touch.

    I think I'll get some of those masks I see the Chinese people wearing.
    If I had kids now I might yank them out of school and educate them at home. I don't know new math so I'd have to find someone who did.

    I remember when implants were considered a danger to women's health, now not having implants is damaging to women's mental health.
