Influenza

Yep, the real thing. The one virus I could easily have prevented, but failed to do so. That's why it's been quieter than usual lately around here. At least it was a rather wimpy version--no way it could have killed 20 million people if it, rather than the Spanish variety, had been rolling around in the nineteen-teens.

And why didn't I get a flu shot? Didn't find the time. Yeah, it would have been so much more troublesome and time-consuming than 4 days flat on my back.

Sounds nasty.

One of the few perks I get in my job is a free 'flu shot every year. I think I did get the flu last year, but it only put me down for 2 days.
