Unclean

Teacher, can you help me put the earring back in? “I… uhm. Hmm. I don’t know. Just I don’t know, my nails are too long.” How do I say weirded out, without saying weirded out? Oh, just tell her it’s unsanitary. “Any bed she lies on while her discharge continues will be unclean, as is her bed during her monthly period, and anything she sits on will be unclean, as during her period.”

There is a stench coming from your head and shoes.

“STOP”, turn around then come back in. YOU know better than to walk in here with shoes on… said every Asian mom I’ve known.

“Infectious bacteria can attach to your shoes when you’ve been walking outdoors, in public restrooms, and other places with high concentrations of pathogens. Pathogens are organisms that cause disease”.

In between messy and neat, I see the sprawled out outside-clothes in my friend’s room, the wrinkled spots in my lover’s room, the heaps of ish in mine.

Mice apparently cause diseases too.
