The disease we primarily focus on around here is the dreaded condition known as Adultitis. Grown-ups everywhere are stricken with the symptoms, and sometimes I feel like the fight is an uphill battle. The disease can also affect children, in the form of Juvenile Adultitis. Nasty stuff.
But there is another childhood plague that is also quite serious. It’s been around for a long time, at least since the widespread establishment of public education.
I am speaking, of course, of cooties.
Even though we spend most of our time treating grown-ups who have forgotten what it was like to be a kid, I feel obligated to pass along this public service announcement on behalf of the children. Speak to your kids about cooties before cooties speaks to them first.
