Public Service Announcement: Flu Season

I've been playing Mom for the past week, because unfortunately my partner came down with a pretty healthy case of the flu. Did you know that mere sniffling, sneezing, and coughing are just child's play in comparison to a full-on flu? I didn't even know what he had at first, because neither of us really get sick except for maybe a two-day cold every once in a rare while. Anyway, the moral of this story is that I got my flu shot earlier this year but my partner didn't, and now the worst I seem to be feeling is a headache and a slightly runny nose, and I'm soooo glad to know that I'm not going to get as sick as he was.

So next year, everybody, go out and get your flu shot! Believe me, it's worth the inconvenience.
