I'm Part of the Problem

I've been joking for weeks about the swine flu pandemic. I'd give high-fives to junior highers at youth group, then tell them they now have swine flu. I made a top pandemic movies list. If anything went wrong in my life, I'd just blame it on swine flu. I'm tired = swine flu. I'm stressed from work = swine flu. I didn't like the movie = swine flu. Bad traffic = swine flu.

Then I got home from summer camp and basically died for a week. Fever, body aches, the works. Turns out that I, in fact, had influenza A. The doctor said that the only strain spreading in AZ right now is the H1N1 virus.

I'm better now, but the irony is killing me.


  1. I feel honored just for knowing someone who got swine flu.

    How are Katie and the baby doing? Hope she didn't get sick.
