Well, first I heard of swine flu in Mexico. Then it was in Texas with one American fatality. Then it was in a handful of states, including Michigan. Then there was a confirmed case about a half hour north of here. And then.....
Two suspected cases at my son's high school and the school is closed for a week!!!!!
Spring concert, athletic practices and events, prom, and everything else school related are all canceled.
WOW!!! And the school is just following the recommendation of the county health department!
Strange times. Yesterday there were lists of school closings in our area-- just like snow days.
So. Not to be outdone by anyone else's possible overreaction, I went to Meijer and bought an enormous supply of those simple items that, short of a vaccine, remain our only defense against dreaded viruses. ( I also bought every flavor of every item for those family members who cannot be persuaded to ignore the taste buds in favor of good health :-)
May this pass quickly!!!
