Non-Internet Viruses

NON-INTERNET VIRUSES….I’ve been working at home for over a year now, and a few weeks ago it occurred to me that I hadn’t gotten a single cold during that time. Virus-wise, my health has been perfect.

Yesterday I got back from my first business trip since September of last year, and this morning I woke up with a cold. Blah.

Yet another good argument for being a hermit (With a fast internet connection, of course.)

POSTSCRIPT: I didn’t have a chance to try out any of the famous Cincinnati chili. Maybe next time.
