LMS Health Tip Friday: Surgical Masks & Kissing

That's right kids! It's Health Tip Friday here at Little Merry Sunshine! You didn't know we had Health Tip Friday, did you? Well, as of today, we do!

As you probably know, Swine Flu (aka H1N1) is all the rage and not in a good way. You may have thought that no one cared about it anymore because the media coverage has died down a bit, but you'd be wrong. Swine Flu is about to be back and more vicious than ever, so now, in addition to thoroughly washing your hands on a regular basis, the good folks at the Centers for Disease Control have some new advice for you:

Heidi Montag & Spencer Pratt demonstrate how you can still be romantic while wearing surgical masks.

Now you and I both know that this possibly takes some of the fun out of tonsil hockey, but it's for your own good and it will require you to be a little more creative. So just do it. I'm going to.

You should also avoid sharing eating utensils with sick friends - whether they're wearing a surgical mask or not.

I can't help but wonder, if preventing the spread of potentially deadly germs is important, wouldn't placing a condom on your tongue or a dental dam be more effective than what is essentially a two-ply paper towel?
