In The Bathroom…May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor

This whole “Hunger Games” phenomenon snuck up on me from behind…like a sneaky Tribute.

Hadn’t read any of the books.  Hadn’t heard of any of the books.

Once the first film based on these best-sellers had been out for all of one week and it eventually became apparent my wife and I were the only two people left who hadn’t seen it…we indeed went and saw it.

And we were glad we did.  Enjoyed it a lot.  In fact, that sent us on a mini-quest to learn a bit more about the making of the movie…and its stars.

Which brings us to the actress who so eloquently portrayed heroine Katniss Everdeen, one Jennifer Lawrence.  “Rolling Stone Magazine” has her as their current cover story.  Headline – “America’s Kick-Ass Sweetheart.”

An American sweetheart who advises Americans within the article of the inherent danger in utilizing our bathrooms too vigorously.  She was queried by the interviewer, Josh Eells, about her stunning ability to depart and return from bathroom breaks as quickly as her film character outraced fire.

Jennifer elaborates…

“I did a science experiment in eighth grade that almost shut down my school.  I had this theory that hand-washing was overrated.  And it was true.  The bathroom door had the same bacteria as the toilet seat and the sink was the dirtiest part – it was dirtier than the toilet handle!  It had disgusting amounts.”

I have to admit when Purell first came out I was intrigued by the prospect of modestly increasing my odds of not picking up random germs the likes of which Jennifer refers to.  At the same time, I didn’t want to become all-consumed with the concept.  I have seen people literally bathe in this stuff…and thinking too much about what all you might come in contact with in the world…and where…can make anyone into a OCD sufferer in a heartbeat.  Remember poor Marion Cotillard going all “Monk” during the filming of “Contagion?” 

But using Purell in any amount was never, ever about replacing the basic, automatic need to always wash up…right?

Well…no worries about Jennifer Lawrence becoming obsessed with Purell.  Or hand-washing.  Pee and get out.

According to her, the odds are ever in your favor to do so.

Damn.  Just remembered after the length of all those trailers and the movie itself…afterwards at the theatre I…well…never mind.

Better odds next time.

  1. That’s enough to make a person dehydrate!


  2. “Dry” humor…!


  3. First of all, I bought the book a couple of months ago. I read halfway through it and was bored. I went to see the movie….about halfway through, I was bored. I don’t get what the big deal is about The Hunger Games!!

    Secondly, what’s wrong with bathing in Purell??? (says the germaphobe….)

    Another great read, Sports!! 🙂


    • I have never tried to bathe in Purell but I have a feeling it probably is best not placed in some areas. On another note, no one seems to have avoided The Hunger Games. What box office it has done!
