Default Just to tell you....

When I emailed GIANT Microbes I asked how they thought of them. They replied that one of the workers brothers was on a plane and then decided that the world needed a plush of the common cold. Isn't that strange? I guess the rest came later.

I heard the creater had kids and that was at least part of the inspiration, anyone that has them knows they can be very gross (my neice can drop something, step on it, and then not think anything of picking it up and eating it )

My bro would have a heart attack! Anything, even a sealed bag of chips, that has touched the floor, he won't eat. He's the complete opposite of me...paranoid about microbes!

My aunt and uncle did the neat freak thing with their kids and my family did not at all, my cousins were always getting sick but we rarely did, immune system needs a workout or something.

Why not just have fun? People get sick, the're miserable for a few days, but at least they were doing fun things rather than taking time to wash their hands every five minutes!

Yeah, I just do my thing and if I get sick I follow the old saying "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger", that is how I sees it. Like cookie dough (mmm cookie dough) yep it has raw eggs in it and I know they can carry pathogens, but does that stop me from eating it, heck no!!!! Cookie dough is so awesome, if it takes me out at least I went out happy!!!
