Modern Day Germ Warfare

Trying an experiment. As the usually clean worker in the usually clean Subway on Lawrence & Winchester made my dinner last night, he turned his head and sneezed. Not to be a huge germophobe, but I’m not certain that every particle of sneeze was contained in his sleeve. Instead of asking him for a fresh sandwich, I thought to myself — I’m healthy, I’m gonna roll the dice. Let’s see if I get sick. And — even further — let’s see if the fact that I now KNOW that shitty Subway germs are now in my body — if I’ll end-up actually creating the reality that I’ll be sick and, thus, will make myself sick. To add insult to injury, the lady at the Perfect Cup licked cookie dough off her hand before pouring my coffee. No kidding guys. It was that nasty. Time to put the Marshall immune system to the test and see what happens . . . I’ll check-in on Monday. (Cough.) Shit.
