Flu Fighters

Yep, I've got it too.

I could see it coming a mile away. Three of the four cubes neighboring mind were all sick in the previous weeks. But like a damsel tied to the tracks in a Western melodrama, there was nothing I could do to avoid it.

Actually, I think I may have contracted it from The D. He comments here pretty frequently and I don't think he washes his hands before he uses his keyboard. Of course, he seems to be having a harder time with it. My symptoms aren't as severe.

I can only assume that's due to my superior genes with their Master Race antiviral abilities handed down by my German ancestors.

Anyway, I raise a glass of Nyquil and toast your health. Here's hoping you don't get sick.

  1. Are you sure it's not the Gout? Sorry I just love asking people that.

  2. You just wait until day 3 comes along. You'll be down for the count just like I was. I also tend to over exaggerate.

  3. This comment has been removed by the author.

  4. Keri -- Pretty sure it's not the Gout since I had my annual Gout vaccine last December. But I haven't ruled out the Rockin' Pneumonia.

  5. The D, in addition to my superior genetic makeup, I've been taking Cold Ease like I own stock in the company.

    Not sure if it will help, but then I wasn't sure if that exorcism would help when I discovered that ancient Indian burial ground in my basement either. And look how that turned out.

  6. I'm thinking a good dose of (Dose=Liter) of Screwdrivers will be the cure to what ails ya! Or a whiskey drip fed intravenously

  7. I think I'm starting to get it myself. I'm just going to accept it and deal as required. I don't think there's any way to really fight it.

    I added you to my IM list at work, btw. But it looks like your ass is home today, anyway. Just wanted to let you know I made my famous brownies last night, and they are so worth the trip up two floors to get one...

  8. Dangerboy and I got sick last week, and we used Oscillococcinum (in the cold medicine aisle). It's not cheap, but it helps to shorten the flu's duration, and I think it worked for us.


Your turn to riff...
