Seriously, people. Don't talk to me about the swine flu. I want no part in the discussion about pandemics and pandemonium. Please. It's not going to balloon and kill millions. You won't get it and your neighbor won't get it. CNN will stop talking about it in two months at the most and then no one will think anything of it ever again.
First it was mad cow. No one got that.
Then SARS. No one got that.
Then West Nile. Some people got that but almost no one died.
And then the bird flu. No one got that, either.
And now this. And you know what? No one's going to get it.
So please. The sooner we all stop freaking out about this, the sooner the media will stop selling it to us. And then it will go away, because it's not actually a big deal.
In other news...I am having dental trouble yet again. Damn my inheritance of my mother's bad teeth!
I need a cavity filled. Does anyone know how much that costs?
The first moments of silence.
