News Photo: One robot serves coffee to another Vienna October…

I saw a story that says the coffee mug you use at work is more than likely, well, germ-laden.

In fact, I think the phrase they used was "colonies of germs."

And they're right. How often do you bring your office coffee mug home to wash it? Or do you wash it at work?

None of the above? I have to confess I'm right there with you.

I know I should keep my office coffee mug clean. And I keep meaning to take it home, but I don't--at least not as often as I should.

And the ANI story went on to say 20 percent of office coffee cups contain (hang on here) fecal bacteria. Not to mention all the other cooties you can pick up.

Now, that's probably from a doorknob or door handle. You know, the guys who don't wash their hands when they leave the rest room are the ones we can thank for that.

So I think I'm going to wash my coffee mug, and be a little more diligent about keeping it clean.

And while I'm at it, I'm going to be thankful I don't get sick more often than I do.
