Billy Bob’s entire crew is down for the count. The flu is rampant. He is the only one well enough to work. But alas it’s a rainy gray day in San Antonio Texas. Can’t work outdoors in this weather.
All around me, people are dropping like flies. Like just now. I am going to the break room for lunch; I pass the Admin who is telling two people “good-bye … hope you feel better” I hear one mumble “thanks … achoo achoo achoo. I hope so too”.
Hmmm. Innocent sneezes? Maybe? Or maybe NOT!
As the turnstile spins open for me to enter and them to leave; I look over at the red noses and the watery eyes and overall dour expressions. Then I <cough,cough,cough>
Psychosomatic sympathy cough? Maybe? Or maybe NOT! And now my eyes are oozing and my nose is running.
I automatically think Jilly, turnaround! grab your family and run for the gates! You … not Charlie Campion could be the one who spreads Captain Trips. 😷😳
This little rabbit hole vignette is brought to you by the following:
1- This weather makes me crazy.
2- I love SK.
3-The Stand is a book I will read and reread again.
4- I’ve got way too much time on my hands. No wait, that’s STYX. Same era as 5. but not the song running through what’s left of my brain.
5-Instead it’s this song: The Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult – Also the Stand TV miniseries theme song.
As always, more to come.
