About six months ago there was a rumor that LDS church officials were going to implement an elbow bump greeting rather than a traditional handshake to aid in the hindrance of disease spreading.
Really? The elbow bump? I can only imagine the elderly doing this. Luckily it was only a rumor.
Again, REALLY? If we think handshaking is a problem, we need to look elsewhere. Like many other churches, the Sacrament is offered to us every week. And I believe we've come a long way from sharing a communal cup...
until Olivia started partaking.
Now, my kids are relatively healthy, but that doesn't keep me from being super grossed out when she insists on discarding her cup. The problem is that there is always a drop (or 3) left in the cup and when she puts the cup back, it always manages to tip and pour into another cup along the way.
All I can say is "ew" (not to mention my apologies to whoever sat behind us).
Don't worry, I now discard her cups for her. I just don't know about the snot-nosed kid two rows up from me.
When your ward has chronic swine flu, you'll know why.
