The problem comes in that the adults become a reservoir of sickness and can infect an unimmunized child, and I bet that a weakened adult would likely have troubles with a pertussis infection...

Glad you find it amusing, the coworkers didn't so much, even when I got some on my gloved hand and would pretend that I was touched by something unclean... Yeah I was often quite bored at work...

You did have me quite concerned over that one, first that ya'll might actually have slawed ants and then that you would hyperventilate and your mom would restrict your computer access to prevent you from sufficating, death by Giantmicrobes forum ! Glad neither happened !!!
