It wasn’t the swine flu

ducksExcept I have no idea whether or not it was the swine flu. It probably wasn’t. It was a mild 24-hour type virus and I am not even coughing or sneezing or blowing my nose now so I am just not sure what the heck this was. They keep saying that folks of a certain (my) age have immunities to the H1N1 virus. And maybe we do. And maybe that means we don’t *get* the swine flu or maybe it means we get a stupid little 24-hour cold-like virus. But I really don’t think I had the swine flu. If I did, I hope I didn’t pass it on to anyone. That’s one of the reasons I stayed home from work this morning…

I am just ducky tonight. I actually think I am pretty close to 100%! We watched a moooovie from Netflix last night, Being There to be specific. We’ve both seen it before, back in the Jurassic Age and wanted to watch it again. The GG watched the moooovie, I drifted in and out. I slept on the Green Couch last night. Under the purple lights draped across our front window. I forced myself into a slow start to the day. I did not do my 0-dark-30 powerwalk. Instead, I took my usual shower and then hung out on the Green Couch checking email and twitter and facebook and blog feeds et al for a while. I got down to business with my work computer around when the sun was coming up and I got a lot of work done on my latest project and then Mouse and I went to Panera for lunch and I headed into my office.

I wasn’t really all that sick yesterday but this morning I felt the familiar sensation of my body kind of knitting itself back together. Kick that blasted virus out.

    I’m glad you’re feeling better! Man, no fun to travel not feeling well (plus you don’t want others giving you dirty looks!)

    Our principal has a confirmed case though and he’s 50. I’m 53 and have felt reasonably confident that I have some immunity, since I had all those childhood diseases. Yikes, maybe I should be dousing myself in hand sanitizer! I also got my flu shot, not that it’s the same kind of flu. 🙂 I’m glad that you’re better and can fly off to SF in good health!!

    Last week some of us on this side of town had 48 hour colds as well. Bob, Gay, Leroy and Pay. Jason and Sue had colds that are more persistent.
    Lucky you.
