She is by far the sweetest of all Giant Microbes, her purple fuzz and giant eyelashes just lure you in. She’ll make you feel like a teenager all over again – if only because she serves as a reminder of the time you had mono in high school. Plus, this is one way you can get the kissing disease without getting an earful from your significant other.
Of course, if you’re from a country outside of North America, you might call this lovely little dear “Glandular Fever” –which doesn’t sound nearly as romantic.
