November 25th, 2009

Ever since all of this swine flu bidness, I’ve been staying much closer to home, and washing hands and surfaces that others have touched.

I have no sick days. If I’m too sick to work, why, I just don’t work. (Or get paid) As if that isn’t bad enough, the week following an absence is sparse, because people find other favourites if their first choice isn’t available on their regular schedule.

Last week, I had problems with my telephone line after a nor’easter, which around here, means a big, cold windy storm. I lost a week’s pay. Not the best time of year for it, either. Now I’m working to wow new callers so they will be loyal to me. (To replace the clients that were wowed by other psychics when I wasn’t available) I still have the persistent cough from over six weeks ago.

So, all you people who are making fun of my germophobia?

Bite me.

From afar. I don’t want your germs, thankyouverymuch.

Dude, the more doorknobs you like, the more different germs you’re IMMUNE to. It’s like they don’t teach you anything up there in Canada.

We’ve leaned towards the germaphobic side lately too. Every time we go to the mall, play ground, and Disney World (we have anual passes,) we bust out the hand sanitizer and wash our hands often. The scariest one for me is when entering Disney, you have to do a finger print scan; we sanitize right away after that one.

Everywhere in London, there are people with masks on. So you’re not alone! So glad we’re near the sea, where the breeze blows our germs away. Be well!

Do what you need to do to stay healthy. I’m self-employed too, and can’t afford to get sick.
