Rumor has it that this season the flu is nasty. Many people who don't normally get a flu shot are getting one. I heard that this flu is so contagious you can get it from someone who's got the germs. They don't have to sneeze on you or anything. Just breathe near you.
I was very queasy last night. My youngest threw up this morning. (Of course, he hadn't had breakfast, so it could have been that.) I was queasy today.
I can't afford to get sick. I can't afford for the kids to get sick either. If sheer stubbornness will keep us well, then we'll stay well.
