I don't know when flu shots being recommendations
for the elderly, compromised immune systems and healthcare workers shifted to
encompass everyone and if you don't acquiesce you are put in the same category
of non-recyclers, those who refuse to wear seatbelts and serve peanut butter to
children, smokers and gun-owners. I'm not ever going to voluntarily get a flu
shot, and apparently that now makes me an awful person.
It also makes me a sick
person. I'm fairly certain it's not the flu, though, just
some ear/lung/sore throat crud that has been rising and falling for the past two
weeks. I thought I had it out of my system until I threw party Friday night and
it came back with full force (I'm sorry, but it's not a party without excessive
drinking, fried food consumption and a cigarette or three).
So, most of 2013 so far has been me being a useless
blob. Which is fine, I've always preferred January for stewing, clinging to the
old ways of the previous year, lazing about generally while gearing up to kick
ass and start fresh in February.
I'll be a new me in a week.
