the version of this from my childhood was called “kiss it up to God.” You pick it up off the ground, kiss it quickly, raise it in the air (like you’re toasting with it) and then you’re free to munch it as normal. I hadn’t thought about that in years. And then recently, I ate a grape off my kitchen floor and caught myself right after I kissed it and just before I was about to raise it. I was so glad no one else saw me, lol.

The whole ‘make your immune system healthy’ thing.  No, it’s not going to fix my immunodeficiency and I need to be more careful than those who are healthy because of it.

If I’m at home or a dog free home that’s reasonably clean I will.  In my backyard, probably, depending on what it is.  I remember someone doing it at school one time – that’s just no.  With the types of chemicals we worked with eating something off the floor was really risky, most people thought so.

I used to believe in the 10 second rule until we got cats. Now, no matter how often I vacuum, if I drop ANYTHING on the floor it somehow gets cat hair on it. No more floor munchies for me ☹️ haha

hahaha! It depends on the floor. currently dropping on the floor means throwing it straight away!

Aussie here too and I always thought it was the ten second rule! Anyway forget about the ten seconds, I’ve eaten some twisties which fell in front of the couch after 24 hours. That was breakfast.
