Biohazard

9:11 AM Edit This 8 Comments »
One of the things I do every day is clean out the biohazard garbages.

Everything around here starts with rubber gloves. Everything. They smell funny.
Oh, and these are my favorite wipes ever. They kill every germ everywhere. But funny, you're not supposed to use them on baby butts or on your own butt either. I love these biohazard stickers. They look wicked.
Once I take the bag out and wipe down the whole garbage can, there's a special way you take your rubber gloves off so that there's no way any of the outsides of the glove touch you. I had to practice a lot.
Then I plop the bag down on the carpet. Seriously. That's what I'm supposed to do. After all that sanitation, you'd think that wouldn't be the case.
Then I scrub my hands raw with germicidal soap and very, very hot water. Because other people's blood is icky. Funny, when one of the kids I love falls down and scrapes their knee or starts bleeding from the nose, I do not and will not ever run for rubber gloves. In that moment, it doesn't matter and I don't care. Love keeps the germs away. Yes, it does.

Does this mean you are feeling better? I hope so.
everybody in VT has the creeping crud too.
Now then though, what is it that you do on this bi hazard job of yours. ...with kids? How do I not know this. Your job is clearly not one of
the most important parts about you since I don't. I remember the church though. Fill us in....

I used to be so afraid for the people that came to get our sharps containers.

"Watch out! We have icky patients! Be careful!" I wanted to yell. But maybe they'd be surprised and accidently throw a used needle at me. So I went to the bathroom instead.

That's kind of the same routine we use in my house to take out our personal garbage. You should see some of the toxic things that make their way from our refrigerator to the trash!

Just for the record, I really don't think children can give you a urinary tract infection. It's not "catching."

Yeah, yeah, excuses. :P
