The Hands

I read recently that 15% of drivers admitted that they pick their noses while sitting in traffic.

That is over one person in 10. Or the key word is “admitted”. How many pick there noses and didn’t admit it? If it the real number is twice that, is almost one person in three… if twice the number of people who didn’t admit it is twice the amount who did admit it then it is 45% traffic nose pickers. Almost one of every two you shake hands with very day.

With that thought in mind, reminds me of a time we were on our way to a middle school band concert which one of our sons was to be in. We were driving a mini-van with dark windows.

At a traffic light in the next lane we saw our son’s band teacher. We were on our way to the same destination.

In the privacy of his own car he was picking his nose and looking at his finger admiring the results of his dig. In privacy behind the dark windows of our Voyager mini-van we were having a good laugh.

The concert was good and afterwards the band teachers was shaking hands – people wanted to shake hands with the maestro. Those hand those people were shaking hands with directed some very good music minutes ago.

Should I have rushed around and told people not to shake his hand, those fingers were plastered with booger slime a while back and did anybody see him was his hands?

No. What they don’t know won’t hurt them. Some of them shook hands with me didn’t they?
