Am I Prudish and Prissy After All?!

The human body may be fearfully and wonderfully made but still... disconcertingly disgusting in many ways. This is what D and I read in a Time book called Your Body - A User's Guide, concerning the skin, we know it's dead cells on the outside:

This used-up tissue falls away from your body at the rate of 30,000 cells per minute (that's almost 50 million per day), and it is responsible for much of the dust you find in your home.

D's friend Billy Bob spent the night last night and D told him: Better go sterilize your toothbrush while you wait, dust has been falling on it while it's sitting there and we know what dust is!
