Maybe this will help those who are trying to stop biting their nails.

I heard this from Whoopi Goldberg on The View. Another woman was trying to stop biting her nails. Whoopi asked her how many times a day she went to the bathroom (you know, #2) and did she wash her hands afterwards.

Of course, she did.

But the kicker was "Do you scrub under your nails with a nail brush every time after you go to the bathroom?"

Of course, she didn't.

Ewww That would make me stop biting my nails! Hope this helps.

Okay that's really gross, and thankfully not something I have to think about. One day I just stopped biting my nails and never went back to it. (I have no idea where that came from but wherever it did, i would like to send chocolate there too...lol)

But i am a little disturbed at the thought of GETTING the stuff under my fingernails whilst i was wiping.
