General, Health

Take that, viruses!

Kleenex is after my own heart with their anti-viral tissues. Not only did I do a jig to celebrate the concept when we found them in the store, but when I opened the box today and saw the little blue dots, I was set adrift on a magical cloud to a world where health and artistic design are blissfully intertwined. I don’t know how long everyone else has known about this, so if I’m behind, I blame/credit TiVo because I no longer watch commercials.

Now, I haven’t gotten the flu in over nine years, even though I worked in a pharmacy for three of those years, lived in a dorm for one, was immunosuppressed last flu season, and never have gotten (nor will I ever get) a flu shot. I just totally jinxed myself to be the first American avian flu victim. But I have known since I was about five that, given favorable conditions, a virus can live on a doorknob for seven days. So, cheers to Kleenex and their product development teams for making a product that helps me worry a little less and gives me something pretty with which to blow my nose.
