A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

THE BUG HAS ARRIVED


I know the blog teaser in today's column said I would be blogging about the mob or Al-Jazeera, but in reality I'm not up to thinking that hard.

Instead, this is about getting sick during the holidays.

Now I ask you, how is it that every other day of the year you can be somewhat healthy (or at least vertical and not contagious), but toss in a good holiday where a lot of people can be infected and all hell breaks loose.

So, this is where I am ... in quarantine, even though I'm so full of antibiotics I could nurse plague victims.

Any survival tips for turkey day?


I'm thinking there might be an upside to wearing a surgical face mask. Besides keeping the germs corralled, I won't be stuffing my piehole.

Have a great Thanksgiving and steer clear of anyone wearing a mask.

Drink lots of water. Humidifier at night, vicks vapo-rub, sudafed plug ins, cough drops, and a good night's rest - that should help, I think. Happy thanksgiving, and feel better.

even if our cold subsides, defrosting turkeys in a tub will certainly give you e coli! why do people buy frozen? fresh not much more expensive and avail in every supermarket and well worth the safety ...ewwww..I think I see some hair on that turkey on the left and a bath ring around the one on the right!

May your stuffing be tasty, may your turkey be plump.
May your taters 'n gravy have nary a lump,
May your yams be delicious, may your pies take the prize,
May your thanksgiving dinner stay off of your thighs.

Gesundheit!
