"Bathing, but Not Alone"

"There are some things it is better just not to think about. Like the 10,000 bacteria you inhale with each breath in the average office building. Or the 10 million bacteria in each glass of tap water. Microbiologists have now added something else to the list of things too gross to contemplate: the deluge of bacteria that hit your face and flow deep into your lungs in the morning shower."

Honestly, what grabbed my attention to this article was the title, "Bathing, but Not Alone." It was one of those moments where I thought....."Why am I not bathing alone, pretty sure I am."
The lede, however, was interesting. It left me wondering what this bacteria would do after it "flows deep into your lungs in the morning shower." How nice, makes me want to shower. But other than that I thought it was a very informative yet catchy lede. It left me with wonder, and gave me the knowledge of all this other bacteria we breathe in that I had no clue about.

  1. You're the second person to choose this lede. It does make you want to read on to find out how just dangerous taking a shower is.
