Washing hands

You know that saying that goes something like “one hand washes the other…”… I have a new twist…

I was cleaning up a particularly disgusting cat mess (I’ll spare you the details) and decided to use a plastic grocery bag over my hand to get the job done.  I only used one hand and promptly disposed of the mess and proceeded to go wash my hands.  Using my OTHER hand, I turned on the water and got the soap… next thing I realize is how unfair it is to my clean hand with the soap… to make it try to wash the hand that had cleaned the mess.  Now keep in mind, my other hand was actually protected by the plastic but I can certainly imagine instances in the past where one hand has been filthy and not the other [the goose poop in my hair springs to mind!!!:  http://blog.scottsontherocks.com/blog/2011/03/03/i-had-a-bad-hair-day/]  Think if this had been someone else’s hand… would I have volunteered to wash it so eagerly (or even not so eagerly)?

Something to think about when one hand won’t wash the other…. Things that make you go HMMMMM…..
