This is embarrassing. I just ate two jellybeans that belonged to Gwen. She was doing jelly bean fractions for homework and brought home the jelly beans she had been working with in class all day. We finished up the problems and I snarfed 'em down. As in, unwrapped candies that had been pawed by kids in a classroom, then transported home (I dont even know what they were carried in, her front pocket?) Then we pawed them some more as we did the homework, and I went and ate some!! I'm glad my immunizations are current.
The thought of a bunch of little kids touching all the candy only came to mind after I had devoured the beans.
I think I can make it, though. Gwen? Well that's another story. She is due to have her first cavity filled tomorrow. She's a fretful mess right now. An epi-pen full of kiddie-Vicodin would be useful. Glad I have the video option on my phone, because she thinks when they give her the meds that she'll start swearing up a storm. Last week as they were cleaning her teeth she purred, "ooooh yeah, little to the left. That's right. There we go. Uuuh-huuuh, now we're talkin'." Of course, it wasn't too long after that when they told her she had a wee cavity, and that's when the geyser of tears began.
