I tried the bitter polish

I’ve never been much of a nail biter myself so I put the bitter tasting nail polish on my fingers to see if my hands still made their way into my mouth for other reasons.

I’ve never been much of a nail biter myself so I put the bitter tasting nail polish on my fingers to see if my hands still made their way into my mouth for other reasons.  I have to tell you, I was eating a sandwich last night for dinner and my lips grazed my fingers... I can tell you it didn’t happen again.  That was not a good taste. 

 I accidently put my fingers in my mouth at least 2 or 3 times last night for various reasons.  I was grossed out each time.  After seeing the disgusting things the microbiology class at Troy found on things like bathroom door handles, a kitchen counter and a coke machine… I am now a firm believer in washing your hands regularly.  I have to tell you, there’s some pretty gross stuff out there.  Wendy Knight at the Medical Center also told me if soap and water isn’t available the next best thing is hand sanitizer and since they make portable bottles now I plan to keep one on me at all times. 

 

Our webmaster, whose nails made a debut in the story’s video, is also trying the bitter tasting polish.  He put it on Thursday night around 5:30 and as of 1:30 p.m. on Friday he says he has not bit his nails yet.  However, he did eat hot wings last night and says that was a challenge because he kept tasting it.

 

Stop Popping Your Knuckles Follow-up:

I have not been successful stopping the popping.  I think after finding out that it’s ok for your joints I’ve popped more often.  That could be because it’s on my mind more because of doing the story.  Have any of you had any luck?

 

I want to hear if you have been able to kick any of your habits this week whether it’s popping knuckles, taking too many over the counter medications, drinking caffeine or biting nails.  I can’t wait to hear from you!
