Who hasn't seen "The Stand" ???

Even if you don't particularly like Stephen King, I think if you've seen it, you gotta love the movie " The Stand" ...Well.....Imagine this ...
Cue music :
Camera wide, shot narrows to large black crow on fence:
Young Military officer at gate of military base answers phone.
Camera: narrow close up shot on face, cue audio:
Other end of the phone is military officer commanding young soldier at gate to shut and lock gate .." We're dropping like flies down here" !! Screaming loudly into phone !

Yes, that was the scene here at my home the past 2 days !!! Well, at least it felt like it !! My GARSH ...I have NEVER been that sick in my entire life !!! And it hit me so fast then without warning and showing absolutely NO MERCY it struck my poor hubby with intensified force and tried to circle back around and make a 2nd surprise sneak attack on me again !!! Yes,,, THE SUPER FLU
But, this was the uhhhuuummmm, lower GI kind with accompaning aches, pains , fever chills, nausea, headache, dizzy, shaky , weak and did I say aches and pains enough ???
I am better now, and hubby is too...He is going to make an attempt to go to work tomorrow..
The Culprit carriers of this nearly lethal virus ??? Some very precious and beautiful but dangerous children...If you have any little ones such as these or Grandchildren ( like mine) RUN ....Don't look back, don't even think about it...Save yourself..They look innocent enough, but looks are often and in this case are DECEIVING !!!!

Ha, ha! What a funny post, Robin :) I mean, not that you were sick but I liked the sarcastic and silly way that you described it!

Can I run from my own kids? I mean, I'm the only one here right now

Hope you had a great day :)

I dread it...I always catch what the girls bring home!

I hope your feeling better and hubby too:)

I hope it can't come through high speed! I'm already getting nervous around here, my friend who has 13 children called today and told me one of her kids has whooping cough and they're all on antibiotics. There are a lot of people in our area who've gotten it. I told her I was sure my kids were immunized, she said it's a different strain???
Glad you survived with your humor intact! Karen

Oh you poor thing. Glad that you're feeling better. Your sense of humor certainly hasn't suffered one smidgen! Kids germs are always the worse. LOL
