Writer's Block: Swine Times

Are you worried about catching the swine flu? Do you have a plan for avoiding contagion or dealing with quarantine?

No, I'm British. It takes more than sniffles and a media panic to worry me. The whole thing is silly.

As long as the tea stocks don't dwindle, the remarkably unlikely quarantine will not bother me in the slightest. Especially not if I can get to Madagascar.

Also, the Falkirk Two (the couple who developed it on their return from their honeymoon in Mexico, and who are now FINE and out of hospital gosh it's so deadly) have apparently hooked up with Max Clifford to sell their story.

I am not worried, and if I do catch it I plan to take the medication and drink lots of gin until it goes away.

The only thing to fret about is mutation.

My boss said he's going to ban everyone who's been to Mexico recently from the office.

I reckon he's going to get 5 calls on Tuesday from people claiming to have been to Mexico for a long weekend. I might be one of them.

My plan:

1. Continue existing as normal. The germs, they are out there, all the time.
2. If I catch the 'flu, lie in bed feeling exceedingly miserable and occasionally posting delirious LJ entries.
3. Take inhalier.
4. Repeat 2 and 3 until better or dead...

I don't see how I could possibly catch it. Even if I did, I'd probably just lie in bed for a few days and feel sorry for myself. :P

Best answer ever. I wish I were British just so I could say stuff like that and "keep a stiff upper lip" or whatever.

My plan? Mock (and laugh) at all the people panicing. If I do get it, stock up on the meds and spend more time playing Pandemic 2 or taking over the world/galaxy!
