Anytime someone tells me they have the flu or they’ve been feeling sick or anything close to that, this is me:
MacGyver is the very same way. And this past weekend he and I were somewhere and someone blew their nose and immediately MacGyver and I had the same reaction.
We were talking about it on Saturday because I had taken Hank to the vet for a bandage change and MacGyver had been watching the news and he told me that he heard them say that the flu cases are starting to decline and that the end could be near. I told him how happy I was to hear that and then told him how one of the vet techs was sneezing and coughing the entire time we were holding Hank down to change his bandage.
And I’m pretty sure she thought I was hella rude because this was me,
I didn’t actually spray disinfectant but I did pull out my hand sanitizer and slather it all over me and pull my shirt up over my face. I told MacGyver the entire story and then he got out the lysol and sprayed my car and everywhere I had been and I sprayed the entire house down.
But on Sunday morning my throat felt a little scratchy. And it didn’t get any better and then Monday after running my allergies went haywirej so I took allergy medication but when that didn’t help I got concerned.
On Tuesday I didn’t run or walk and by 11AM I was exhausted and needed a three hour nap. When I was ready for bed again at 9PM, I knew something was wrong. That’s why I got up this morning first thing and went to the doctor.
Despite all the hand sanitizer, the copious amounts of lysol, and all the precautions we took this year I somehow ended up with the flu!
WTF it’s Wednesday and I cannot believe I have the flu!
