Charlie has been learning about germs in Science at school. Apparently all of my lecturing on the importance of washing your hands, germs, etc. didn’t mean squat.
Charlie – Momma, did you know that germs are bad? That there are germs on your hands and on everything? Did you know that there are 5 different germs? There is the one that looks like a pizza, one has spikes, one looks like a tooth (said while pointing to a tooth) and I forget what the other one is.
Me – Yes. I know germs are bad. That is why I keep telling you to wash your hands so often.
Charlie – The pizza germ is berry, berry, berry infinity bad. It can make you berry berry berry sick and even DIE! (Charlie can’t say his Vs properly)
Me – Yes, some germs can make you very sick.
Charlie – warm water kills the bad germs. You have to wash your hands with warm water. Cold water doesn’t kill them.
Then the conversation moved on.
