Sick of being sick

The flu is going around and it has found me.

I have lost track of the various flus we have going around but we have a tendency to blame them on someone or something other than ourselves. The English, Hong Kong or birds ...

Whatever it's called, it's the pits. We've had it floating around California and while no one's died from it yet, but a lot of people have missed work trying to shake it. This season's version seems to be more tenacious, not very willing to depart and eager to return at the slightest provocation.

Customers are getting it too and that does not put them in a very good mood or make them more willing to be cooperative.

D.D.
