Swallow those screams and hold back the cringe that’s wriggling up your
spine. Yes, the eight things below are on the icky side of the spectrum. But
you know what? It’s silver lining time. GL presents eight things that might
gross you out, but almost definitely will not kill you.
Public restrooms. The whole
contracting-an-STD-on-a-toilet-seat myth has been thoroughly debunked, so no
worries. But do wash your hands.
Hair in your food. Yes, it’s
disgusting. Yes, you should send that plate back if you’re in a restaurant. But
hair does not transmit diseases, so you’re safe.
Eating bugs. It’s just like
Dad always said—protein! fiber!
Hotdogs. No, you really
don’t want to know how their made. Eat ‘em at cookouts and enjoy. Then maybe
have some fruit.
Sweaty gym bag smell. That’s
not to say you shouldn’t clean it out and wash that sucker, though. The smell
is from bacteria—ewwy.
Getting pooped on by a bird.
Hey, it’s good luck! But wet wipes in your purse are not necessarily a bad
Gum on your shoe. Yeah, we
wouldn’t pull it off and chew it, but it’s more of an annoyance than anything
Double dippers. Unless
they’re sick, the added bacteria in an already-out dish of dip won’t hurt you.

gross-out? Tell us in the comments!
