I have always been one to wash my hands. growing up I remember my mother had a massive hate for visibly dirty nails. I don't believe my mother was considered a germaphobe, we just always thought she was obsessed with being clean. If she were still alive she would be living in her prime, where everyone now washes their hands and is concerned about being clean. Seriously, I am convinced my mother would be giving classes on how to avoid germs and how to live a happy clean lifestyle. She'd be thriving during this pandemic.

A new survey of 2,000 adults has me thinking that we may all now call ourselves germaphobes. According to swnsdigital.com 75% of us are now going out of our way to make sure we avoid germs. If you aren't going out of your way, clearly you haven't heard of this new thing going around called Coronavirus. Look it up.

The most common thing that we are doing is singing a tune that will keep us at a handwashing station for at least 20 seconds. I normally sing "Friends In Low Places" by Garth Brooks. You can sing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and I won't judge you.
