When I was doing my anesthesia rotation, I remember one of the nurses complained that the unconscious patient drooled all over her.
Another nurse said something like, "So? It's only baby spit."
Actually, even though patient was about 8 or 9, she had a good point: patients slobber on you a lot, and it's much less unpleasant to be slobbered on by a kid. The younger the better. (Well, maybe not BETTER, but less unpleasant.)
After that comment, I started to wonder who is the least or most unpleasant person that can drool on you. Obviously, a loved one's drool is not that bad. Baby drool is definitely on the low end as well, barely even icky at all if it's your own baby. I have been covered in baby drool and barely cared. My daughter, who is no longer a baby, sometimes licks me for some reason... and that's not so bad either. I guess as a person gets older, their drool becomes more and more disgusting, especially after that big jump during adolescence. I think in general, 20 year old drool is a lot better than 89 year old drool. I also think that senile people with candida have worse drool.
And of course, there is the question of male vs. female. I think female drool is probably better than male, if only because women have smaller mouths so I'd guess there's less of it. But the age thing still applies... 20 year old male drool is better than 89 year old female drool.
Wow, what a disgusting entry. I'm so sorry.
