Twittering Tales — A Bit Too Far

But she was allergic to sunflowers, birds, and black cotton dresses. They made her eyes water and her nose run.

You’ve heard the expression don’t cut off your nose to spite your face, right? She took it a bit too far.

    haha! Well at least she doesn’t have to worry about that runny nose and watery eyes. 😀

    That’s about how I feel right now. I’ve been sick for almost three weeks. While at a drugstore picking up something simple about a month ago, I saw a sign for a flu shot. I’ve never had a flu shot before, but I thought about it this year. Then, I decided it was pointless to way how useful flu shots are… as it was already almost summer. I think I’ve actually had two different things. First flu, and now an extreme cold. One of my sons and I have had the symptoms in reverse order. There are times when I feel better and think it’s all going away. Then it hits hard again. It’s more than the eyes and the nose, though. Maybe there are two kinds of flu.

    Oh, well. I just looked it up. The shot is only twenty-five percent effective and is recognized as contributing the GBS.
