The Flu
They're right - this flu epidemic is resistant to the flu shot, because I got mine and it sure as heck didn't work

Fever of 102 for more than 24 hours? Check. I got it down to 100.5 at one point thanks to Nyquil and Alleve.

Can't get warm no matter how many hot showers or blankets I lie under? Check.

Every joint aches like I'm ninety? Check

Massive headache off and on? Check.

Sleeping for nearly 18 hours straight? Check

No interest in food? Check (Don't worry, I made some scrambled eggs and toast and forced it down)

Sounding like Carol Channing on a bender? Check

Leaving for Aruba in 72 hours? Check - we hope.

    Dear God - you are scaring me. I am the worst sick person ever, and EVERYONE is getting this flu. Please-oh-please-oh-please pass me by. And, yes, yes, yes, I hope you feel better soon. Hugs.

    The good news is that the virus I've seen only lasts for about 3 days at it's worst. Hopefully you'll be feeling much better by the time your flight takes off!
