Brother Bug's traveling infection show

Pack up the babies and grab the old ladies, because this sucker is contagious.

Just what I needed in the dead of winter, right?

I wish you a speedy recovery ... and may any of your enemies share the joy of your malady :)

Get Well

You have my sympathies, Charles. I'm on the fifth day of this...thing, and there have been moments when I wondered whether death would really be all that bad.

My wife says it's "just a bad cold." Yeah, right. Pretty soon we'll be reading obituaries that go like this:

"JOHN SMITH, b. 1952, beloved husband of Martha, beloved father of David and Linda, died 2/17 of just a bad cold."

And then there's the hypochondriac's epitaph: "I told you I was sick!"

Get well soon, Charles! I am guessing you have your chicken noodle soup, Vicks VapoRub and are getting plenty of rest? I have escaped it so far and am using Lysol on my monitor right now. {{sniffle}} You weren't kidding about it being contagious! I'm off to MSNBC!!

Yikes. Get well soon and don't forget to disinfect the doorknobs.
