Have you ever been in this situation before?


What did you do about it?


Did you have your next meal, like business as usual or did you hesitate, just as you picked up that cutlery?

How did your body respond to all that?


Do you consider pickle (hand) washing that important in your life? Like all the time or you can twist the rules a bit, to favour you in the moment?

Hand Germs

I ask you all these because I’ve noticed a very interesting pattern over the years

Many young people, like I, simply take this task for granted like…. GRANTED

We don’t care to know what’s to lose, on the line if we carry on this way

Some say that it’s time-wasting

“You’ve just washed your hands and then placed your hand(s) on something. You ask me to re-wash them? Hell to the NO!”


Others say that these things are soooo not them….

“Mmaaannnn….that whole thing of washing my pickles regularly is just not me. All my life, I’ve done things the military-way”.


You will hear others say that no matter how much you wash your hands, you won’t survive the wrath of the germs.

“We will all die someday. No one lives forever. So why then bother with washing my hands all the time?”

Something is for sure….the germs that you laissez-fairely interact with, may not kill you in an instant

But they will mock you from the inside….that’s for sure

Feeling hungry

You want to eat that fruit

Remember that it’s not washed

Next thing you know,

The tummy is rumbling….

You begin worrying and your dose of anxiety kicks in

In the long-run, your period may not happen that month

That erection may fail to turn up


We all know where this kind of story goes, right?

  3. What a funny way to work around talking about washing your hands. If you wash too often you’ll get cracking on your hands etc. So you need to wash your hands regularly, but not obsessively.

  4. I always wash mine. Sometimes I wonder if others look at me and sneer especially when I am going to use my right hand to cut a piece of ugali, with the same cutlery that everyone has been using to cut theirs. I rewash my hands on such occasions. You know the right-hand syndrome? Where you use the right hand to cut and place the knife back. Then the right hand to place the ladle back; and then the right hand to eat. Everyone else does the same. I find it funny so to cut down arguments and sneers, I use the left hand to serve on roundtable meals where we are using bare hands to eat. I always find this quite selfish, but then, I am taking care of my health.
