>I really need to stop watching the evening news. It’s just making me more paranoid.
Today, I was eating lunch at my desk when I saw a mosquito fly by. I FREAKED out. I jumped out of my chair. My Lean Cuisine pizza went one way while I went the other.
Dammit. I can’t get West Nile! I avoid going outside as much as possible because of bugs and now they are invading the indoors! This was in the middle of the day. I thought mosquitos only moved around at dawn and dusk. Maybe it wasn’t a mosquito, but one of those spy camera’s Dan Brown wrote about in Deception Point. I think I’d be more comfortable with a spy camera.
I also heard a few more dead bird calls come into the office. Say good-bye to the magpie.
Then I come home and the damn news is talking about the bird flu. What the hell is the bird flu? I don’t think we’re going to have that problem since all the birds are getting killed off by the West Nile.
Hmm…on second thought, that article says that one guy lost 30 pounds when he caught it. Maybe the bird flu wouldn’t be so bad. You would get time off from work and lose weight all at the same time. It couldn’t be any worse than one of those horrible weightloss surgeries or even that pill that gave you gas with oily discharge.
