Default Back to bingo tonight

My partner in crime called me to say she can't make it - as she coughed up a lung. She didn't SAY she had flu but she's sure got something. Bummer, this city still rolls up the sidewalk at dusk. I have to leave at seven thirty, wait half an hour at a transfer point, then barely get in on time for a nine o'clock shift.

The person I now have to work with is... interesting & not in any fun & exciting way.

At least I'll get to see how many customers show up, find out what happened to our caller & see what the flu gossip is up there.

Have fun, Sue. I went to a faculty get together today and several of them reported they had the flu, their kids had the flu... It is really wide-spread around here.

Default Back, tired...

Low attendance again, 59 showed up. I heard a LOT of coughing tonight & overheard one silly bint opine that she should have stayed home, she thought she was coming down with the flu.

Those who've had it & returned... most had the classic couple days of hell type experience with no real problems. A few ended up in emerg with concerns about previous cardiac conditions.

Interestingly, those reporting the milder cases seem to be having the hardest recoveries - ongoing fatigue. It seems to be spreading from kids to mom & dad then up to grandparents & grandparents get hit more lightly.

Again interestingly, many of us who've had it in the past couple of months are now starting to get 'throats' - I've got a really scratchy throat & hoarse voice this evening; rather annoying. That & a headache. Too much heat in the bingo hall & not enough ventilation.
