I was walking through the mall tonight, on my way to my car after my bus ride home, and I came to the elevator.
Don't judge me. I was wearing a narrow skirt, so taking the stairs would have meant certain death.
And awkward walking.
And I'm a lazy bum.
Anyway... walking to car, waiting for elevator.
And then a mom approached with her cute toddler son.
She reached across and took some hand sanitizer from a dispenser hanging next to the elevator. She wiped her hands and then wiped her son's hands.
And then I stared and stared.
I pass that elevator on a daily friggin' basis and never, not once, have I ever noticed that damn hand sanitizer dispenser thingie hanging on the wall.
Which made me think that mothers can probably spot those things a mile away. Like tunnel vision, zeroing in on it. They probably have their eyes trained to pick out every possible opportunity to clean their child.
Either that or I'm a sick pig who never washes her hands.
But I'm hoping it's the mother thing.
