The Day of COOTIES!

Remember COOTIES? .. emoticon ..Those were the days! As a little kid, don't remember much about germs or virus. Things were plain and simple: Cooties! My brothers and I played with them.



My brothers and I used to go on long trips to our grandparents farm in the Sierra Nevada mountains. I sat in the back seat- squished between those two! Our conversation went like this:

"SCOOT OVER-YOU'RE ON MY SIDE!"
"AM NOT!"
'MAWWW-UM--SHE KICKED ME!"
"DID NOT! HE PINCHED ME!"
"DON'T TOUCH ME!--YOU HAVE COOTIES!"



" KEEP YOUR PAWS TO YOURSELF OR YOUR DAD IS GOING TO PULL THIS CAR OVER!"

Never could figure why our Mother called them PAWS---But Dad called them Mitts.

I look back and see just how simple life was. We had COOTIES--plain and simple!
Today it is germs, and virus. We weren't rich or poor but we always had plenty of toilet paper.

If you asked me "What did you learn when you were growing up?
I would say---I learned to ALWAYS wash your mitts/ paws after using the bathroom!
Wash before meals---Because we could not bring the cooties to the table!



emoticon ...SIX feet apart. {after reading your posts---some refer to cooties as head lice. Never heard that one--but glad we never got em!}

Thanks for stopping by--have a good day and be sure to wash your paws--Often!
