    Just in time for Christmas shopping....

    Infectuously Cute Plush Microbes!

    Most folks never realize how cute microbes can be when expanded 1,000,000 times and then fashioned into cuddly plush. Until now, that is. Keep one on your desktop to remind yourself that there is an "invisible" universe out there filled with very small things that can do incredible damage to much bigger things. Then go and wash your hands. Lather, rinse, repeat.

    Your choice of (just to name a few)

    Herpes (Herpes Simplex Virus 2)
    Malaria (Plasmodium falciparum)
    Rabies (Rabies Virus)
    The Plague - black death (Yersinia pestis)
    Acne/Pimple (Propionibacterium acnes)
    The Pox/Syphillis (Treponema pallidum)
    The Clap/Gonorrhea (Neisseria gonorrhoeae)

    And many, many more!!!!!!!!!!!

    The funny thing is that the worse the microbe, the cuter the plush is.

    I think the fat cell is pretty darned cute. Maybe if I keep telling myself that I won't get so stressed about them hanging around.

    (Although, like children, they are cuter one-on-one than in large mobs!)

    We actually already have these in our house!
    We bought them sometime last year.
    They are adorable!!!
    My kids' doctor's office has had them for years....that's where we first saw them...
    they're the perfect gift!
    My kids love them lol!
    I sat there for the longest time
    after you were gone....
    thinking about all things we said.....
    and all the things we didn't say...
    I wonder if you misunderstood,
    cause I'm no good when it comes to talking....
    And I'm sorry,I didn't know the words.......
    to make you stay.
