Captain Tripps

No, I'm not down with the sickness.

However, Mr. Recommendation felt the wrath of Brisbane 10 last week. So much, he had to go to the ER for some IV rehydration, breathing treatments, antibiotics, and a fatty bill. This week, Mom has it. It was only a matter of time.

So far, I've managed to elude B-10, although we are starting to see staff members at work falling victim. I'd like to think that my entire sick month of November was the strain before it mutated into the festering mess it is now. If that is the case, I should have some sort of immunity already.

I hope.

So, best of luck to you, especially if you have it. Drink lots of fluids. Get lots of rest. Wash your hands. Treat the symptoms, but don't overdo.

Don't call me. I don't make house calls.

You know, I have to admit that since I quit smoking I don't think I've had so much as a serious cold or the flu.

And I don't get flu shots. Probably should.

But (knock on wood) my immune system seems to be much stronger now that I am tobacco free.

I dont care if the flu came from brisbane, perth or melbourne, I dont want it. I wash my hands so much , Im starting to get a Howard Hughes like phobia over germs. My computer is covered in kleenex even as I type this.

Strange. When I smoked, I never got sick. Okay, maybe once every two or three years. Then, three years ago, I smoked my last cigarette. Now, I seem to get sick two or three times every year.

I'm convinced that NIH/military germ labs are a sham. There is no such thing--they just use it as a front to siphon money off for other crap. The real super bugs are being bred at my son's day care.
