I have had two severe colds this year so far. Today I went to the doctor and got some meds for a nasty sinus infection. I realized today where I might be picking up all the germs I've been harboring lately. I realized that the water cooler in our office is a smorgasbord of cooties that travel from a persons mouth/hands to the spout on the water cooler where the water comes out. Think about it. People put bottles up to their mouths and then put them directly on the spout of the cooler to refill. I had been doing that with my cup as well.
I'm sure this was already obvious to some of you reading this but, I must confess, I am a slow learner. Going forward, I'm going to bring my own water from home - either in a gallon container that only gets refilled at home or try to get my water in my body first thing in the morning and avoid the water cooler here all together.
Stay healthy! Pat
