A not-so-bad germ

Needham kids teach their friend a lesson.

My 11-year-old son was blowing chewing-gum bubbles, and my daughter, almost 6, was trying to pop them with her finger. Her friend saw her and told her she shouldn’t do that because the gum had lots of germs. My daughter informed her that it was OK, they were harmless “family germs.”
