Huh?

Yesterday I happened to be outside when the mail man pulled up in his little Jeep. I stood on the deck as he reached out to open our mailbox and put new mail in. This was when I noticed... a blue latex glove on his "mail hand."

His driving hand was bare, but the right hand was enclosed in one of those powder blue latex gloves that you see in hospitals.

So I got to wondering. WTF? Is he afraid of mailbox cooties? Is he terrified of anthrax? Does he think perhaps that mailbox spiders will launch themselves at him when he opens the box and sink their fangs into his hand?

So I'm still thinking about it. I'm hoping that I'll catch him again today and see whether or not it will be repeated. It has me very confused.

Lame and paranoid and just a little creepy.

maybe he's had a bad experience... with a... paper-cut perhaps?
