My life - always crazy...the Swine Flu and More!

So guess who has the swine flu? Otherwise referred to as H1N1??? Nope it's not me...but my mother has it...yeppers. She lives in a northern community and there are huge outbreaks up there. From what I can tell every other person in her small town has it...her neighbour, 3 of her close friends...craziness!

The boyfriend is also currently sitting in the waiting room hospital because he has severe stomach pain...I'm sure he'll be fine but I feel so helpless stuck here at work. He had just started a stop smoking aid about 3 days ago and has had stomach pains ever since...so I told him this morning to stop taking the pills. I'll update when I know more.

Soooooooo, here's a funny story to lighten the mood a little...

Yesterday morning I got on the bus as usual on my way downtown to work...there were no seats to be had so I was standing as were a few other people. So this guy leans over and quietly says to me "please don't scream"...Immediately I started thinking terrifying thoughts...this guy is going to stab me and then rob me and lord knows what else...apparently the look of sheer terror on my face was priceless (according to my friend E who had gotten on the same bus a few stops later). My rational mind then came back to me...and I realized that he'd have to be pretty darn stupid to try to hurt me on a bus jam packed full of people...so I said "why would I scream?"...to which he replied..."oh you just have a bug on your arm...some people are really scared of canker worms" lol. A little canker worm on my arm is much less terrifying than a murderer!

I hope both your mom and boyfriend are ok. What pills is he taking to quit smoking?

I seriously would have dropped to the floor screaming "don't hurt me! I have seven children at home to feed!" if someone did that to me on the bus.

Why on earth would a stranger say 'dont' scream' to someone? What ELSE were you supposed to think?

That Girl said...

yeah weirdo stranger guy! you know I would have thought the same exact thing!

btw, I dont think your comment thing is working....I have made more than 6 (or did it say 7?) comments on your blog.

Jenna said...

WOW - hope your mom is feeling better soon! That is crazy...have you been in contact w/ her lately?

Smooch - he's on something called Champix. Thankfully he's okay now...the doctor thinks his pain may have been caused by taking antibiotics on an empty stomach...men..they never listen!

Your poor mom. Yikes! I'm sorry to hear she has the swine flu. Ugh.

And I wonder what's going on with your boyfriend? I hope it's not serious. :-/

The guy on the bus...funny. Glad you weren't murdered!

Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues
with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of
hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to
protect against hackers?
