So, I have this … friend … who cut her finger while slicing cheese for her kids’ lunch. It’s not a bad cut, but it does need to be covered, or it stings (she told me). Would you have any advice for my friend about how to keep her bandaids dry when she washes her hands? I mean, how do you keep just one finger out of the water? Or do you have to change bandaids each time? Or live with icky wet bandaids?
She has to wash them a lot, you know. She’s got three kids*, and two of them are still in diapers**. She changes one diaper, and washes her hands. Then 10 minutes later the other one needs a diaper change, so she needs to wash again. Then the kids want to eat, so she’s gotta wash her hands before touching the food. And that pesky food addiction of theirs tends to lead to more dirty diapers, and you can see the dilemma.
What to do?
*What a coincidence, huh?
**Really, it’s eerie how much this friend and I have in common. The big difference, of course, is that I never do anything this clumsy.
