This year, I need to think more before I speak. Here's why:

Before Christmas, I think I mentioned that I had cleaned up my apartment. In fact, I got my bathroom so clean, that I remarked out loud to myself, "This bathroom is so clean, I could eat off of the floor behind the toilet!"

One night this week, I decided that I needed a NyQuil to soothe my virally-infected nasal passages, in order to get some sleep before an early-morning clinic session. When I opened up the package, one of the caplets fell to the ground and rolled away. I got on my hands and knees to find it: there it was, on the floor, behind the toilet.

If I didn't believe it, I shouldn't have said it. I ate it.

Oh man, if you were just a med student I could understand that, but jesus man, you have a PhD. What were you thinking. There are few things in this world nastier than the area surrounding a man's toilet. I hope you at least rinsed it off first. BTW, 29C is pasadena today. Sweltering.

Well, I really believe that I achieved absolute asepsis.
