#AtoZChallenge One-liner: G is for Germs



A word that can scare people into doing anything just to get rid of it; a microorganism that is no match for soap and water.

This is day #15 of the lockdown here in India. Hope you and your family are safe and well. Stay safe. Take care.

Also linking up with Linda’s One-liner Wednesday prompt.

So, how often are you washing your hands these days? Can I get a number?

What are the steps you are taking to get rid of germs?

    1. Glad to know that. Prevention is most definitely better than cure, especially since there’s no cure in the picture right now. Stay stay. Take care. Keep washing your hands. Thank you for reading.

    1. Go, Corona, Go. Isn’t it? I can’t wait for that to happen. I wonder when things will get back to normal. A darker part of me wonders if it’ll ever get back to normal. But until then, we have to practice social distancing and extremely good personal hygiene.
      How’s the situation over there?

      1. I don’t have to look at news channels–no matter what I’m watching, the networks air precautions and news breaks…can’t get away from it–I need a Break! πŸ™‚

    1. This is a time when your OCD to wash hands can be a good thing. It’s better to be safe than sorry, isn’t it? Hang in there. This too shall pass.
      That sounds like a great theme. I’ll definitely pay a visit. Thank you for the link. πŸ™‚


  1. I don’t remember the count, but yes whenever my brain says “Hey, you may be having germs on your hands.” I run to wash my hands. I already used to take lot of time while washing hands. And this situation has made me more cautious.

  2. I have always washed my hands after entering some. I have always washed my hands after using the loo. I have always washed my hands before touching any food or even while I am cooking. So I don’t think I’m washing my hands any more than I’ve always done… As for germs….. sometimes I think we need to have germs around. Too much cleanliness destroys immunity. My dad used to sincerely tell me to have a teaspoon of gutter water to build up immunity.. Of course I never did it but I do know that being obsessed about germs doesn’t get you anywhere. Having said that I am observing lockdown and wearing a mask

    1. I have this habit of washing my hands after doing any activity that requires touching multiple surfaces! Too much of anything is not a good thing. But in the present situation, there seems to be an exception! Stay safe, take care, dear.


  3. Shweta, hope you are doing great dear even if in lock down.. and yeah, as you said these fatty bellys of nasty germs can only be broken up by proper hand wash… have you watched a ted talk related to the same…

  4. For me and my family, it’s business as usual. That’s because I have OCD for washing hands (and everything). The husband and son used to wash their hands grudgingly earlier but are now doing it willingly and without any reminders. πŸ˜€

    1. It’s a good thing that they have taken it up and are doing it of their own will. There’s a bright side to everything after all, isn’t it? Keep washing. Stay safe. Take care. πŸ™‚


    1. Ohh, day 26ish!!! How are you holding up? True. My hands also seem to be getting drier. Stashing hand cream all over the house seems like a great idea. Maybe, I’ll adopt that too. Thanks for reading. πŸ™‚
