The water bottle

OK, I need your advice.

I started bringing a water bottle to work, because I believe wholeheartedly in the amazing power of WATER.  So I like to drink a lot of it during the day.  I rinse it out every day and wash it with soap twice a week.

However, a week ago, while I was drinking from the water bottle when I noticed there was some black crud in the drinking straw.  This inspired me to grab some cotton-tipped applicators from the supply closet and clean out the straw.  The cotton came away BLACK.  I used six of them, then washed again with soap, and then christened the water bottle as clean.

But when recounting this story to a coworker, they said I should have thrown it out and bought a new one.  That no matter how much I cleaned, it was not clean.  But to be fair, this coworker spends about ten minutes wiping down her work station every morning. (I'm not saying she's wrong to do that, but that's a level of disinfection I don't embrace.)

What do you think?  Can I still use my water bottle?  Is there a way to prevent this from happening again besides the cotton tips?

Have you ever done this before

This amazing cartoon was drawn by my daughter, who is only TWELVE!  Clearly, she is way more talented than her mom.

The Perfect Son

It’s been ages since I posted anything here. It was one of those vicious cycles, where I would feel like nobody was reading, so I would be reluctant to post, and that would make people stop reading since nothing was posted here.  I’ve also been focusing a lot more on my fiction writing career, which is the reason for this post.

Yesterday, I released another book, titled The Perfect Son.

"Mrs. Cass, we were hoping your son could answer a few questions about the girl who disappeared last night..."

Erika Cass has a perfect family and a perfect life. Until the evening when two detectives show up at her front door.

A high school girl has vanished from Erika's quiet suburban neighborhood. The police suspect the worst--murder. And Erika's teenage son, Liam, was the last person to see the girl alive.

Erika has always sensed something dark and disturbed in her seemingly perfect older child. She wants to believe he's innocent, but as the evidence mounts, she can't deny the truth--Liam may have done the unthinkable.

Now she must ask herself:

How far will she go to protect her son?             

It’s on Amazon if you want to check it out. If you have Kindle unlimited or prime, it’s free! 

And I would love people to say hello if they’re still reading, so I would know if it’s worth continuing to write things here…
