Attention, public health officials. If you are wondering where this year’s influenza epidemic is, wonder no further. Death Plague 2012 is kicking butt and taking no prisoners right here in Hobbiton. This past week, myself and a number of my colleagues fell prey to a vicious and virulent 72 hour flu virus. That’s three days you spend begging for death followed by 3-4 days where you don’t so much as feel better as you feel less sick. After that, it’s a good week to regain your strength and start feeling like yourself.
Be afraid. Be very afraid.
