And so another birthday rolls around. I am 73 today. In April, Garry will be 78. For both of us, this Coronavirus is potentially lethal. It is NOT the flu. Really. It isn’t.
It targets the elderly, children, and anyone who has any other kind of medical issue. America is completely unprepared to deal with the problem and guess who got us to this bizarre place? You bet. Finally, Trump has a problem he can’t make go away by attacking Obama, but he sure has tried. What a stupid, stupid man.
Hell, even the regular flu could kill me, but I get flu shots! There IS no vaccine for this and damned little that can be done. It’s a virus. They don’t respond to antibiotics and a lot of the people who have died were doctors and nurses.
Don’t think this is a scare tactic. The problem isn’t alarmists pretending there is a problem. The problem are governments who think it’s no big deal and are not preparing for what is going to happen. You don’t need to buy out your grocery store, but don’t think that pretending nothing is happening will make it unhappen.
Be careful, keep safe, and stay healthy. Personally, I’d like to make it to 74.
Are you a sweet, sour, tangy or another type of person? Take that as you will! 😉
The only thing I know is I’m not sweet. The rest? It depends on the day you ask me.
Does the whole coronavirus phenomenon worry you? Or are you more a “meh – it’s just another severe flu scare” type of person?
Of course, it scares me. I’ve had major heart surgery with two implanted valves, and a Pacemaker that keeps my heart beating. I’m also asthmatic. If I were a healthy 25-year-old I would probably not be as upset. At this age, I’d be an idiot if I weren’t worried.
If you think this is phony, you aren’t thinking. There have been thousands of deaths and it hasn’t yet taken over in the Americas, Australia, or New Zealand. Fear not. It’ll get there. Everyone travels and every place has a high likelihood of infection. If you are young and very healthy, you are lucky. But if you are young, very healthy — and you have family and friends who are not young and healthy and you get sick, you can kill them with your “meh.”
When was the last time you were snooping and found something you wish you hadn’t?
Other than something a dog left behind? That’s why I’m afraid to move the refrigerator. There might be something there. Ew.
What’s the most pleasant sounding accent in your personal opinion? Everyone has a pleasing accent to someone!
Absolutely Caribbean! There’s nothing sexier than an accent from Barbados or Jamaica or the Bahamas. Or any of the islands in the region.
