...because it's hard to practice "meticulous hygiene" all the time. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/03/health/03brod.html?src=me&ref=homepage So according to this NY Times article, I've been doing the whole gym thing all wrong. I'm supposed to have these things in my gym bag: -shower shoes, -blow-dryer for my feet, -foot powder, -antibacterial liquid soap, -a whole separete gym bag, -antibacterial wipes, -spray bottle, -own exercise mat, -quiz sheet for gym listing all cleaning agents as well as the cleaning schedule. Also I need to switch doctors to one who's "well versed in skin deseases." Sound reasonable.
