Mexico a Hotbed of Flu
And not the good flu, either. Cases of swine flu have been popping up. I guess they were jealous of all the attention China was getting with the avian flu incidents and decided something had to be done.
The World Health Organization is monitoring the situation closely. Cases of swine flu have now been identified in Southern California, Kansas and New York, so it's spreading.
I went on an ass-kicking, 10 + mile hike yesterday and am convinced I'm going to get Lyme disease. If a tick lands on my arm, I can catch it. If it lands in my hair... Suffice it to say I'm probably going to get Lyme disease. But not JUST Lyme disease. See, before the hike I stopped at a grocery store for snacks and there was a tamale lady in the parking lot so I got a pork tamale to satiate my hunger. The pork tamale coupled with the tick that's no doubt bitten me, will probably make me the first person to get Lyme-Swine disease.
I just want to say it was nice knowing all of you. If I end up in the hospital, don't try to visit. I'd hate to pass this on to any of you.
