A Bit of Humor

Someone who knows that Amor Chiquito has a fever asked if she might have "that swine flu thing" and said that perhaps we should bring her in ASAP.

I'm sorry. I don't mean to be mean or lack sensitivity, but, literally, LOL!

No, sir, she does not have swine flu. No, sir, no need to freak out. You were in the same room as my daughter a few days back, but she is showing 0 signs or symptoms of swine flu, so you're fine! We did not give you those cooties! Maybe we gave you other cooties, but I have no idea what the hell they are yet!

Perhaps I am being mean and he was sincerely worried about my child's wellbeing, but... His comment did not come across that way.

I hope no one is offended. I just thought his remark was funny and I needed the laugh!


  1. Swine flu my ass. Seriously.

    The Boy's wonderful nurse for today told me a theory that she heard about swine flu: remember how two years ago there was bird flu? And they had a whole bunch of TamiFlu that they stocked up on? Well that stuff has a shelf life of a bit over two years and they have to get rid of it. ZOMG swine flu!!!!!

  2. Lol! Agreed.

    All kidding aside, I saw your facebook post about swine flu on your husband's blog a few weeks back. Great point. Thanks for sharing the useful stats. If only we could get a caring, powerful politician to read your blog...
