A little common sense

I’m not sure if you guys out there get this news as much as we do here in Jersey, but I am absolutely sick of hearing about that damn flu vaccine and those mornic lotteries.

I haven’t gotten the flu in like 3 or 4 years and you want to know what my secret is?

  1. I wash my hands all of the time (I have to touch a lot of people’s keyboards)
  2. I drink orange juice (it’s my coffee)
  3. I turn my head when I cough or sneeze into a napkin (don’t they teach you this when you’re a kid?)

There… Now what is so hard about following those simple rules in avoiding getting this sickness?

Flu vaccines didn’t exist a short while ago and I didn’t hear of a major death toll created by the flu in recent times.

I just don’t get it.

I haven’t gotten a flu vaccine ever in my life, and I have never gotten the flu. Wanna know the fucked up part about it all is??

1) I hardly ever wash my hands

2) I drink tons of water and don’t take any vitamins

3) I am always around sick people.

I don’t know, I think that they are just making too much of a deal out of the flu. So what, you are sick…. BIG DEAL!

I’ve gotten a flu shot every year since I’ve started teaching. This is my fifth year, and I don’t think I’ll be able to get one. I’m not freaking out about it, because I’ve had the flu before and it’s not the end of the world. But, it would be nice to get a shot because, no matter how many times I wash my hands and how much orange juice I drink, it’s really hard to avoid getting sick when you have 21 grubby little children hugging you all day. 🙂

Yeah, you’re pretty much in the thick of it. Kids are the dirtiest germiest little things aren’t they? Hope you don’t get caught with the bug this season!

Kids most certainly are the germiest things! Especially 5 year olds. But, I love ’em anyway! 🙂

I’m taking all the precautions I can to make sure I don’t get sick. I usually catch strep once or twice each year… but, I think I’m slowly building up an immunity to everything.

You got the washing of the hands right. That is the single most important thing you can do. Add some zinc to your diet and your good to go!
