Wednesday, January 11th, 2006 • No Comments on Sickness
Two days ago I made the comment that I haven’t gotten sick since I left the library. I attributed it to being away from the germ infested kids who frequent the children’s room. In truth, that’s probably the main reason I’ve gone 4+ months without some sort of infectious illness. However, the sickness fairy came to remedy that yesterday. As the day progressed, I felt worse and worse and now I’m sick. I think (hope) it’s only a cold. Time will tell. I actually feel a little bit better today, thanks to the restorative powers of rest, sleep and cold medicine (designed to help me rest and sleep).
I avoided getting a flu shot last year because I refused to play into all the hype about epidemics and pandemics and shortages of flu vaccines, etc. I also managed to avoid getting the flu, so everything worked out just fine. This year, with a trip to England in my near future, I’m thinking a flu shot might be a good idea.
