This flu (not covid) that’s going around right now is a nasty one. I think I have experienced every symptom, in progression, that you can possibly get.
After a week of fevers, coughing, aching, fatigue and tummy upset, I’ve reached the congestion and sneezing stage. And believe me, these are record-setting sneezes.
I’ve never experienced such sets of violent, successive sneezes, ever. Five in a row isn’t uncommon. I’m worried my shoes will pop off or my teeth might fly out. If you’ve recently felt some slight tremors, that might have been the vibrations from my sneezes.
Of course, this means that my body is getting rid of the virus and despite boxes of hankies and bottles of sanitiser, I’m probably still expelling enormous clouds of particles with a radius of at least two kilometres. I did go to work at the end of the week, but I had to wear a mask and quarantine my office. Not that it mattered all that much since most people were at home with flu themselves.
I’m slowly getting better and over the worst of it. But do try your best to avoid this one, as it’s dreadful.
Happy Sunday and good luck to Canada’s Soccer team! 🇨🇦
I am not a smoker, but I couldn’t resist a picture of this bristling butt disposal depot. Ugh. While I can’t imagine standing out in this cold for a puff – and I totally get why no one has bothered to clean this thing – I guess any proverbial butt in a storm will do!
