The Flu Has Flown

Forrest Gump Said It Best

“stupid is as stupid does”

You would think a smart fellow like me would follow instructions.

What Was I Thinking?

As Realtors® we are in physical contact with people each day. Our exposure to the vagaries of transmittable viruses is high. Normal health precautions should prevail to ensure our own well being and those whom we meet.

I’m not sure what made me do it but I never did get a Flu shot this year – against prevailing advice. I regret that decision as this particular strain caught me unprepared. Having it’s way with me, it ravaged my body and soul solidly for the past 10 days. The after affects linger with bouts of sleepiness and lethargy.

Sound Beating

Few things defeat me, but this time, I cried “Uncle”.

Haven’t had your flu shot yet? Take a hint – follow instructions. It’s no free trip to Hollywood if you get it.

I was starting to wonder if you’d died. Glad to hear that you’re on the rebound.

Best wishes.

welcome back larry!

did you know The Chief Public Health Officer of Canada says millions of us get the flu every year. millions! and 20,000 are hospitalized and 4-8,000 (mostly seniors) die every year from the flu. Apparantely 3-4 pandemics occur every century, the last was 1968 and some experts think we’re overdue for another. now on that cheery note….
