I ask because I am trying to determine if that's what I have, or if it's just a regular illness. I have perused the handy Knowledge is Your Best Defence pamphlet issued with my tax dollars, and have drawn up some contingency plans. So if my skin turns bluish or grey, I start hacking up bloody mucus, I get more confused than usual, and I start to vomit with a persistence that may just land me an Academy Award, somebody should really do something about it. Contact my euphemistically-named health care provider, according to the ever-so-helpful Public Health Agency of Canada pamphlet.
I would love to hear your flu stories. How ill did you get, how long were you sick? Did you turn into a big crybaby too?
I'll tell you one small miracle for which I remain grateful - that I am not going to be sitting in below freezing temperatures watching a football game tomorrow night. Being the chauffeur for the event suits me just fine. And I would rather eat a watermelon than wear one.
