I have two confessions:
1. My hands have never been so clean. I truly thought that some of my skin around my fingernails was just sort of a "dirt tattoo" and was permanent, but...nope!
2. We don't have a thermometer in the house, and I don't think ever had, BUT I do have two equine rectal thermometers in the barn. One has been used and is resting in its alcohol bottle with a string and alligator clip attached. The other has never been used, and is still in its box, although it is probably ten years old at this point.
Can you appropriate an unsullied rectal horse thermometer for oral use in hominids??? Thoughts...?? Besides eeeewww, I mean.
