It’s winter again, and with that comes people freaking out over going outside with their hair wet. Every winter I hear it: “Oh no, my hair’s wet, I’m going to get sick!”
No you’re not.
You get sick from germs, okay. Germs. You remember Bald Man sneezing behind you while you were waiting on line to buy that sweater (blue does not look good on you, by the way)? That’s how you get sick.
You remember Hacking Old Lady in the elevator yesterday, who may or may not have been checking you out which may or may not have turned you on in an “I think I have problems” kind of way? That’s how you get sick.
It’s not from your hair being wet.
You want to take a shower and step out into the freezing winter day with nothing but your socks on? Go ahead. You won’t get sick from it. You might, depending on how many Fried Foods Tuesdays you’ve enjoyed, scar people who see you for life, but you won’t catch a cold.
If you really don’t want to get sick this year, how about washing your hands once in awhile? Maybe instead of not washing up after you take a piss because you have to rush back to your work computer to see if anyone wants to gchat with you (they see the green “available” dot and they are not taking the bait dude, let it go) you take a minute and scrub those hands.
It doesn’t matter though. You’re probably reading this and thinking that it makes sense, but you still don’t believe me, and that’s fine.
But just remember, I’m a guy who you’ve never met who also writes a blog, and that makes me an Expert About Everything.
