It's Coming

Yes, it's that time of year again. You know it's lurking around every unsanitized corner, phone mouth piece, unwashed hand you shake. Every time you sneeze or cough, you wonder, could this be it? Oh yes my friends, I'm talking about the flu. And, I'm afraid to say, I think it's here. I woke up kind of sleepy this morning, but that's normal, it's Monday! However as the day progressed, I noticed I was coughing a little more often, a couple sneezes too many. I've got that head-too-heavy, hotter than hot but no fever, achy muscle, lethargic thing going on. So, I'm drinking the OJ and plan to knock myself out w/ a shot of Nyquil tonight. I've never had a flu shot, so this year's panic-inducing shortage isn't a problem for me. However, I'm sure as flu season progresses, it will become a problem for all of us, as more people will be sick. All I can say, at the risk of sounding like each of our mothers, WASH YOUR HANDS! Wish me luck as I prepare for the battle. Now, I'll sing you a song, "The flu ain't gonna break my style, the flu ain't gonna slow me down, oh no, I got to keep on moving."

Hey Brandi -- Sorry to hear you're feeling like shit. I know everyone is going to say this to you and it's the LAST thing you're going to want to hear, but I've NEVER had a flu shot and I've NEVER had the flu...knock on wood. Don't forget to get lots of rest and drink lots of fluids!! Did you ever notice that things like OJ, apple juice, and water are only "fluids" when you're sick. When you're just thirsty why don't you ever say, "gosh, I really need to go get some fluids?" Just something that's always wondered me. Also, we had a guest speaker today at the school and he was awesome. He owns his own agency here in Miami and he gave some great advice, the one that stuck out the most was something that TARP always told me. Advertisers rarely (pretty much, never) come up with something 100% original, we just put new spins on existing ideas. Just thought you would find that interesting, good 'ol Tarp. Feel better soon!

I do agree on the fluids thing. Maybe I will start using that as part of my vocabulary. Hey guys, let's go get some fluids! Thanks for the pick-me-up x2!
