Yesterday’s hands-on activity was an interesting and creative way to demonstrate the lasting effects of momentary indulgences. When I selected my tube, I wasn’t nervous but did feel helpless. The randomization is similar to how a child being born doesn’t choose if he or she will inherit his or her mother’s STD. I was not choosy in picking partners and took them first come first serve. Waiting for the test, I was curious to view the results. I was surprised that I hadn’t been infected, maybe even disappointed.
