    From avoiding the flu virus?

    Not touching door handles with your bare hands? Or water fountains. Anything in a restroom. Wondering how clean the people who prepare your food when you eat out/get carry out hands are?

    The most important bit of information that no one seems to stress is...don't touch your face.

    I'm not getting the flu shots. Now I will say every morning I'm there with Clorox wipes on desks, laptops, doorknobs.

    My 22 year old has been quite sick the past 3 days, he went to work today but was running a 102F temp yesterday. If i had control, he would have stayed home. His deal, already missed two days.

    I am pretty careful anyways but my son already got it, and I think I had a small case of it so I am not too worried anymore.
    I did have to use three different public restrooms yesterday and they all smelled like crap!

    I take the bus to work. During the winter (June to August) I was very careful to avoid people coughing and sneezing (really, some folks don't even cough/sneeze into their hands). At work straight into the antibacterial stuff. Couple of times during the day into the antibacterial stuff again. After getting home go and wash hands with antibacterial soap. I never used to bother with that sort of routine, now I do it every day. And I do the medico handwash - web of fingers, both thumbs and the rest of it.

    I have allergies in the fall/winter season ... so combined with my smoking I am always coughing and sneezing this time of year ... except in the desert.

    No. I refuse to live in fear. i touch door handles, toilet levers and grocery carts. I do not use anti- bacterial cleaners or hand sanitizers.

    And guess what? I haven't had the flu in over 15 years. Because I let my immune system do its job, it is stronger while you and your fellow germophobes are allowing yours to atrophy.

    I cough in your general direction and watch you cringe.

    Are you the one spitting out your hockers on the sidewalk too?

    Have you met Sinatra?

    I avoid stepping on cracks in the sidewalk, keep garlic and poseys in my pockets and if someone sneezes around me I spin in a circle three times (both ways) then yell: Iggly, wiggly pop while jumping up and down flapping my arms.
    Works every time.
