Wondering: Flu Bug Comes Home to Roost

Wondering: About that flu bug … no fun. I feel like death and sound worse. Don’t even want to mention how I look. What a New Year … whoopeee … cough, snort, sneeze, croak.

DFO: My nephews and son brought the bug into my house, and my wife caught it. I spent New Year’s Eve looking for Sudafed. (Found it behind the counter at Albertson’s.) However, I’ve escaped the bug so far and am wondering if that shot I received this year, around Halloween, had anything to do with my current state of good health? I don’t believe it’s a coincidence because I’ve caught everything that’s come around for the previous 2-3 years.

Question: Have you been sick this fall/winter?
