So Far, So Good

As of this minute, I have not been struck down by the stomach flu. I’m not going to go getting all cocky about that since I am well aware that doing so would be the equivalent of laying a virtual slap on the Univers, an action that practically begs for retaliation.

Also, my boss, with whom I will be driving to Denver tomorrow, was up late last night with her young daughter, who had…the stomach flu. So, our odds of coming out of this without our own bout of it are looking worse and worse.

In addition, The Teenager and the Man-Cub went back to school, today. And, by school, I obviously mean “Germ Pool”. God alone knows what horrors they will be tracking into the house upon their arrival home this afternoon.

On the bright side, if we do manage to dodge the stomach flu bullet, my boss and I will have two days away from the germ-carriers. Well, away from the germ carriers who belong to us, at any rate.

Do you think it’s too late to invest in a couple of those white surgical masks that the Asian folks are always sporting?

If not, do you think white surgical masks will go with a “business casual” wardrobe?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Add pinstripes to the mask and you're all set. Good luck!
