About five minutes after arriving at the airport I realized I had forgotten to bring a travel size hand sanitizer. Everything I touched made me even more aware. Acutely aware.
I may or may not have counted how many times the lady in front of me used the very same crumpled tissue to blow her nose on separate occasions…. (it was 4)
I should be used to it. I teach first grade after all. I have one student (who will remain nameless) that likes to repeatedly lick his pencil. We use a lot of g and sanitizer. A LOT. To be without it leaves me feeling a bit unarmed against the germs and bugs out there. Definitely going to be finding a Walmart in the near future. As my students call it “hanitizer”- don’t leave home without it!
