Sixth day of generally feeling like crap. Congestion, nose that’s running the Indy 500. Clear mucas Body temperature 96.9. Onset sore throat x 2 days. Normal vitals.

This is clearly that Pig Flu thing. I’ve got the plague. I’m surely going to die? Right? I should call an ambulance, yell at them for not coming fast enough, demand transport the 5 blocks to the ER (“and it better be a smooth ride pal”), and insist they give me antibiotics? That’s just the kind of thing you Ambulance Drivers love isn’t it? Or would you prefer I wait until0300?

(sorry, clearly I’m feeling a touch of the smart mouth this morning.)
