bisous and germs and stuff...encore!

I should repost the post from a couple weeks ago about unhygienic bisous. It seems more appropriate now since, earlier this week, Suzanne broke out in strange sores around her mouth. After a couple days, I finally brought her to the doctor's because it was far beyond a canker sore or teething (ie was also on her feet and hands). Guess what the culprit is? Yup, cold sores, fever blisters, bouton d'herpès.

As I ranted to the doctor (not my normal bisousing doctor) about people bisousing with cold sores, he calmly told me that it wasn't necessarily the bisous' fault - it could have been a kid who she shared a toy with. But yes, he said, people don't realize it's a virus and is contagious. He also told me that not bisousing someone because of a cold sore, although a good idea, was a major faux pas. Who's side is he on anyway?

So it looks like I'm stuck bisousing. And it also looks like I've proved I'm either clairvoyant or damned.

If you ever encounter someone you don't want to kiss, just sneeze and tell them you're coming down with something. A cold, the flu, malaria...LOL!
