For the first time ever, I got a flu shot this morning. A woman who was bringing her elderly mother in for a shot appeared mortified at my admission of being a flu shot rookie until I added that I had never had the flu, either.
But this year the flu is hitting hard. The kids on our campus who have flu are spending their contagious time together. There is so much swine flu on the news I think everyone must be aware.
Then, 2 weeks ago, I get a head cold. It was bad enough I missed a day of work, but never ran a fever and was back quickly. Ever since I have had just enough occasionally congestion and cough that every time I hear the word flu I wonder.
So, this year (today), I finally got a flu shot. If you get the flu, you won’t get it from me.
I think I feel better already.
