Room for Rent #1 – Immune Surplus

We’re moving house tomorrow, and I’m putting my writing habit to good use by drafting a new ad each day until we move to help our landlords advertise some of the unique characteristics of the flat we’ve grown to love over the past five months.

You wonder why kids who eat sand get sick less? It’s because they’re constantly exposed to harmful bacteria in small quantities. We’ve utilised the same biological phenomena to ensure that you’re constantly exposed to all sorts of bacteria from the comfort of your bathroom. At random intervals, your flatmates will wipe the bathroom floor with your towel, one simple manoeuvre that will ensure your immune system remains at the top of its game. Short term side effects can include diarrhoea and eye infections, but it’s a small price to pay for the long term health benefits.
