Swine plague

Well I've got 'man-flu' (as the wife calls it) in May. Not just any May, but abut the hottest, sunniest May on record, which I'm sure is not the usual time of year to catching these things.

Personally, I think it's probably swine flu, or the plague, or some weird cross-hybrid of swine plague. No doubt Dustin Hoffman and Cuba Gooding Jr will be parachuting from a helicopter onto my roof any minute now to stop Donald Sutherland blowing up my apartment block.

Strange thing diseases, especially viruses. You ask me, we should be vaccinating the pigs, they're the ones who are giving people flu. I'm sure it can't be that hard, I mean, they can vaccinate cats against AIDS for crying out loud. Maybe we should get the vets and the doctors to all switch jobs for a week, see how things work out.

The good thing is I'm not smoking - breathing is hard enough at the moment without making things even more difficult for myself. Hopefully I'll last longer than a week this time.

Ahh, great. Now you've started a new line. It's internet swine. All you have to do is say you have it and then type it out for all to read, and it's digested through the eyeballs, where we potentially go blind and throw up all at the same time.

THank man. Really. Just thanks.

Just let me know when you manage to get vets and doctors to swap. I'll know not to go and ask to have my temperature taken.

Hillbilly - sorry, looks as though I may have started armageddon a bit early.

Fran - Think they said a week on Tuesday... if they try give you a saucer of milk when you get there, RUN!

Renacerpupas - Manejé encontrar uno en el último, yo no estoy seguro cómo es bueno trabaja, satisfago tan déjome saber.
