Handshakes, or not

I am sick. I have a cold and am stuck working from home. While I enjoy working from home some days to be more productive with less interruptions than in the office, staying here because I am sick is NOT cool.

Why am I sick? I’ll tell you why… Because this Friday, someone who shall remain nameless shook my hand and kissed me even though they knew they were very sick.

So, note to all… it is perfectly acceptable and extremely appreciated if you DO NOT shake my hand when you are sick. I will not be offended, in fact, I will be very grateful that you chose to think of my health.

I remember having a cold at a trade show and apologetically waving at the hundreds of people that I met instead of shaking hands and explaining why.

Time to down some more vitamin c.
