The flu is a huge problem in our state and country right now, so any and every way we can make washing hands fun and fast is much - needed.

My wife Ali and I took our girls to Pizza Artista for dinner last week. I hadn't been there in a while and was surprised to find some kind of bizarre - looking thing that I at first thought was an empty drink cup dispenser. Turns out the intriguing blue unit was, in fact, a very cool and very fun way to wash your hands!

Because I'm a kid trapped in a man's body, I went back and washed my hands two more times! You even get a sticker that read 'I washed my hands at Pizza Artista!' This is a great way to get kids (of all ages) to wash their hands and cut down on the spreading of nasty germs.

In case you're wondering, yes, my wife is going straight to Heaven for putting up with me...
