Seems I'm the last one standing - er, sitting - in the office since a mysterious flu-bug swept through the building the end of last week. Am I on borrowed time?
It started Thursday with various and sundry folks complaining of chills, fever, and the like. Friday, things got progressively worse. Today, everyone has staggered in looking much worse for wear and with the same story. Chills, very high fever, cough, sore throat - and it hits very fast and hard. Someone suggested that I just bind a pillow to my head, as I'm likely to drop at a moment's notice and without warning.
So here I sit. In the middle of Pandemic Central. Just waiting for the first throat tickle. Anyone got a Biosafety Level 4 suit on 'em? I feel like I'm working in a test lab for a weird, hard-hitting flu strain.
Had chicken soup for lunch and as always am drinking endless cups of tea. Any other suggestions (besides going home - not an option)?
