Ahem

Wow I have a cough. I am all The Penguin and no Batgirl this week.

And, with the Swine Flu fears deep and rich in our busy busy city everyone stares, my co-workers are annoyed. At the risk of sounding trite I will say I have a whole new appreciation for gay men and people of colour. Can't remember the last time I had such power to make people uncomfortable simply by being; maybe never.

At the risk of sounding irreverent...

Just reassure your coworkers that it's not swine flu; just a touch of tuberculosis.

You should try announcing that you homeschool -- it's good for a lot of dirty looks and/or people pretending you are invisible. Being identified as a carrier of pestilience would be a breeze.

Hope you feel better!

Ah, but if you have the swine flu AND you homeschool, you are a heroine to the masses b/c your germs are outta the schools.

Get better, m'dear.

BTW, in an effort to cheer you up, I'll tell you this. MadDad led circle time at day care today. He was teaching 4-yr-olds how to act. Ha!

Have you tried mentioning that you are an Atheist? That makes people very uncomfortable.

My dear SA went to our doc for a note to miss work due to flu...she sent him for a swabbing and included a mask which he wore around town. He did not flinch. What a guy.

We have not heard back or heard his name read out on the CBC so we suspect it is not The Bad Flu. Just A Bad Flu. Your cough sounds like my baby's, he who has never smoked a day in his life. And so I suspect in a few days I will sound like you.

Hack.

Get well soon.
