Why You Should Wash Your Hands

My seven-year-old son is learning all about personal hygiene in school.  I personally think the extra reinforcement is good for him.  He's a bonified slob!

Anyway, he had a test on the subject.

He knew why you should brush your teeth.  He knew why you should eat a healthy diet.  But he seemed to have a little trouble on why you should wash your hands.

In sloppy print, he wrote:  Because mice have rabies.

I'm sure the teacher thought that was a great reason to wash your hands!

  4. I guess he probably thinks he doesn't have to wash his hands several times a day when once seems enough.
