Cancer Causing Countertops....
Are you kidding me? Have you all heard the latest news reports that granite counter tops can pose a cancer risk? WHAT? Yes, they are natural stones that emit radiation and radon, higher levels found in more exotic stones. Ok, this is insane. You can't tell paranoid Rose this kind of news and expect me to sit and just laugh or shake it off. Not when I've got two beautiful angels living in my house! So, yes I ordered the radon testing kit, in fact I ordered two of them, one for the kitchen and another one to check the basement. Husband sitting by nervously because HE KNOWS that if they are loaded with this stuff what is going to happen. So, he's quiet yesterday as I am telling him what I read, then starts laughing at me telling me I'm nuts. AND as I am telling him the report comes on the tv. Shhhhh he says, raise the volume....haaaaa! So, after hearing the news report he turns to me and says (voice quivering), "So, what are your plans if our counters are radioactive?" - Haaaa, rip them out of course what do you expect - (DUH I'm thinkin)? I respond. Have you ever seen real fear on a grown man's face? Yep, he had that look. Relax I said, you won't have to do it, we'll have the new countertop people pull it out. Um, that didn't change the look, or the dollar signs that reflected from his enormous pupils. So, tell me how could such beauty cause cancer? What next?
