No. It's not a meme. I came up with this idea all on my own.
You see, I have a desk allergy.
Last Thursday with the advent of my new computer I decided that I should clean my office. Good call. I've been sneezing heaps and a little dust reduction is a really good idea.
But I had forgotten that when I used to work in local government, finally getting my desk clean was inevitably the trigger for getting a really bad cold. As if under all the paper and dust there was a perfect breeding ground for nasty bugs that would rise up and get me as soon as they were released from the mess.
So last night as I was enduring a huge alllergy attack I remembered that a clean desk is not always a good thing for me.
However, what's the chance that it will be a problem again for a very long time?
