JusJoJan — Flue Season

8cd89527-9257-4dd3-8618-0e1c19ed28f4“Barry just flew in from the west coast,” Nancy told her mother on the phone, “and he has the flu.”

“Oh that’s awful,” Nancy’s mother said. “Well it is flu season. Does he have a fever?”

“Yes, and a sore throat and the chills too,” Nancy said. “I’m going to give him a cup of hot Theraflu with some honey in it to drink. Then I’m going to wrap him with a blanket and sit with him, the poor man, in front of the fire.”

“Don’t forget to open the flue, dear,” her mother said. “Do you remember when you father, rest his soul, almost burned down the house because he started a fire and forgot to open the flue?”

“Um, Mom,” Nancy said, “how many times do I have to tell you that we have a ventless gas fireplace? There is no flue.”

    I had problems with my flue many times, thinking that I had it opened and filling the living room with smoke and of course having my wife call me an idiot.

    They had better crack a window, and best turn on a fan.
