So apparently the new wave of the flu is going around. First it was the dry lung cough and now it’s the wet throaty cough. I’m not sure which one grosses me out more. At work the people who were sick last week are getting better and now there’s a new wave of sick people. There’s also a new wave of sick kids. Kids never take you seriously when you tell them to cover their mouth if they cough. I was forced to Lysol myself because this kid coughed on me..seriously right?! EW! I have a pretty weak immune system and I’m generally the first one to get sick. I’ve been drinking like Vitamin C dietary supplement as a means to stay healthy. WHY CAN’T KIDS JUST COVER THEIR MOUTHS?!
Anyway, my birthday is this Saturday and I’ll be turning 24. I was having a conversation with my coworker about getting older and I told her that after 21 it kind of goes down hill from there. She laughed at me and told me that after 21 I should just be glad my bones are all intact. She’s in her mid fifties so I guess she knows what she’s talking about? I remember I couldn’t wait to turn 18 because that meant I was a legal adult. When I was 18 I couldn’t wait to turn 21 because that meant I could drink and buy alcohol legally. I’ve never really celebrated my birthday all that much after I turned 21 because I felt like the rest of the years aren’t really that big of a milestone. Am I wrong? I mean I know people will remember what age they were when they got married or when they have kids but I was excited about being legal and buying alcohol which technically isn’t even on the same playing field. People go to Vegas and all that jazz but I save my money for a spa day if time permits and a quiet dinner at home with family. I’ve never been much of a party person. I guess you could stay I’m a grandma at heart. Eh..it doesn’t really bother me lol
If you have kids, please tell them to cover their mouths when they cough. Also make sure they wash their hands and use hand sanitizer because chances are the other kids at school don’t cover their mouths when they cough. Some people think I’m exaggerating but until you work at a school, you don’t know how many kids really just don’t give a hoot. Sorry I haven’t had time to post anything food related. I spent my MLKJR weekend sleeping and getting adequate rest so I wouldn’t catch the flu. Right now work has me pretty exhausted so hopefully I get something posted soon. I’m usually too tired to blog. Stay healthy!
