Athena’s new plush toys: Giant Microbes! Obsessive that I am, I got the whole set: Shigella dysenteriae, Strptococcus pyogenes, Bordetella pertussis, Rhinovirus, Orthomyxoviridus and Streptococcus pneumoniae, all one million times size, plush, and with totally non-accurate eyes. As you can see, Athena is entirely thrilled. I do sometimes wonder if 20 years from now my daughter will presenting me with very expensive therapy bills. Hopefully she’ll have her own insurance by then. Until then, pure comedy gold!
Athena says: "My bugs are sleeping right now, until the evening when they’ll wake up and find people to infect!" That’s the spirit.
