Kills 99.99% of Germs with Moisturizers and Vitamin E

I guess this is what they mean when they say "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy."

I have been working too much this week and my mind is a little lacking in inspiration.

So today, I'm "blogging" on the last thing I read, which happens to be: a bottle of Instant Hand Sanitizer that I keep on my desk. The wording on the label (quoted above) is terrible grammar. Literally, it implies that either it is using the moisturizers and vitamin E to kill the germs or that it kills the germs that have them--no, no, no. Totally wrong.

Anyway, it's a cool product, basically rubbing alcohol in gel form. When I first saw it I was completely disdainful, because I assumed it was a product for people who are basically disgusted by real life and try to isolate themselves from anything related to biology. I'm not like that. But after a couple of airplane trips that resulted in illness, I gave it a try, and the last two trips when I used the hand sanitizer regularly, I didn't get sick. I recognize that washing my hands is just as effective, but it's a little easier to use the sanitizer when I'm at my desk and I don't have to go all the way to the other room to wash with soap and water. It smells good, too.

Starting tomorrow, I'm back on my regular schedule, so I will try to make more effort to be literary--maybe a sonnet?

There is a massive bottle of that stuff with a pump dispenser on the desk at the gym for people to use after they work out. I get "this stuff is great!" comments several times a day, and usually the same people comment each time I work. It's hard to come up with a good but different conversational line for the same comment from the same person every other day. I once said the same thing and I got a look of "You said that yesterday..." and I wanted to look at them with a look that said, "You did, too!" but instead I came up with an additional comment and they looked happy again. Small towns are weird.

Can't agree with you on this subject at all, maybe I lean too far the other way.
