Swine Flu, and Cell Phones, Too
What did I learn this week? Hmmmm.......
I have been watching the news and learned some things about the swine flu. I learned you prevent swine flu the same way you prevent other flu....wash hands, cover mouth when sneezing and coughing, avoid sick people, don't touch anything and then your face, avoid people who are sick (I hate that one piece of advice. If healthy people avoid sick people, who is going to take care of the sick person?), and keep hand sanitizer on hand. The news also said to let it dry on its own, and not wipe it off. The hand sanitizer. Geesh!
It is good to know that you prevent swine flu the same way as regular flu. My friend Candy tweeted that thousands of people have died from the regular flu this year, yet we don't get our shorts in a bunch over it the way we do swine flu. Look, I am not making fun of swine flu. I know people have died, and I am sorry. I am just saying that I learned that prevention is the same as for regular flu, and that is good news, because regular flu can be bad news, too. That's what I learned this week. Yep!
Oh, I also learned how to check to voicemail on my cell phone. That could be useful, too.
