This was a busy weekend for me and finally had some time to catch up on the local and national news last night (As well- I watched some CHEESY after school special but that's a whole other blog. We all need to watch things once in a while that are strictly for fluff purpose only. AKA guilty pleasures I assume.). As I clicked on the home page for my local paper I noticed the head liner "Deadly Swine Flu Hit Canada: Alberta On High Alert" and a picture of people standing on a street corner with surgical masks over their faces.
First things first- I'd like to thank the media for attempting to instill fear in me. I would now like to guzzle a bottle of Purell hand Sanitizer and hide away in my freshly bleached condo.
Second thing- Swine Flu? Where do these names come from?? First there was Bird Flu and now Swine Flu- old MacDonald needs to look after his live stock a bit better and stop people with weak immune systems from playing with his animals.
I'm going to be a good girl and find out where this stuff comes from before I babble myself into sounding super simple.
