Frodik, "Cooties" are imaginary germs, bugs or disease. Its a silly thing that children between 5 and 11 torture each other with. If a boy touches a girl on the playground, you got boy cooties and must immunized by a pack of girls. Its the same for boys. Once when I was about 8, a boy touched me and I couldn't get ANYONE to give me a cootie shot. I had to have boy cooties all day and I went home crying to my mom. I got back at him though. I knocked him down and stole one of his shoes. I didn't get cooties from touching him that time because I had my magic force field up.
