Thoughts on Swine Flu

Swine flu, it’s everywhere… in the news I mean, but it is spreading in real life.

I don’t like it when I get the flu. I don’t like when you get the flu.

Let’s face it, I don’t like any flavor of the flu (swine, bird, or original blend).

With that sentiment in mind, here are some tips to keep the flu away from you (and me).

  1. Wash your hands.
  2. Cover your mouth when you cough and sneeze.
  3. Don’t your any of the sensory organs on your face (unless you are covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze).
  4. Wash your damn hands!
  5. If you feel like you have the flu, STAY HOME!!!

I’m serious about that last one. When someone walks into work “toughing it” through the flu, I don’t look at that person and think, “Wow… what an inspiring person.” I think to myself, “WTF are you doing here you self-important jerk! Go home before you get everyone else sick.”

I have a pretty impressive collection of influenza antibodies but I don’t really care to add to it. Keep your flu to yourself.
