5 second rule

we all have probably heard of the 5 second rule
if you just have 1 kid 
you probably dont practice the 5 second rule
most folks by the time that 2nd or 3rd kid comes around
well some move that out to a 10 second rule

what germs are you really worried about
you know there are good germs
i read where farm kids are healthier and have 
less asthma and allergy than city kids
they get exposed to a lot of germs

how else are city kids going to get exposed to 
those germs

the ones to really worry about
are the ones that you see on tv
when there are the outbreaks from 
meat contamination
packaged food contamination 
even salad mixes

these are the well known ones
e coli
some viurses

just ask chipotle about these guys

my theory is that you are more likely to get sick
from eating at a restaurant 
buying meat
buying processed food
buying contaminated veggie
following the 5 second rule

i sit here looking at my kitchen floor
i think
how long will i let the food sit there before i pick it up
and eat it
now i vacuumed the floor yesterday
dust mopped the floor
wet mopped it
so its as clean as its going to get
i dropped a chip on the floor
set the timer
at 5 seconds 
i popped it in my mouth
didnt bother me at all
i dropped another on the floor
set the timer
by 10 seconds 
i was having second thoughts
i popped it in my mouth
didnt bother me at all

so at what time frame would you give up

now i guess if you have a dog 
you just leave it there 
since they dont really care

i always wondered how come they can violate
the 5 second rule
never get sick
heck just thing of the places they put their mouth on
it dont hurt them none it seems

so after this short experiment 
i would say
10 second could be my new rule

oh wait
is that a brownie in the corner over there
i looked around
my wife she aint up yet
i reached down
savored every minute of its flavor

i admit im a  rule breaker
