So yesterday, I’m in my crowded gym, waiting for a free space on one of the treadmills. On the TV overhead is CNN and they’re showing a story on the swine flu.
Out of nowhere, I get a tickle in my throat. And I cough.
People on the treadmill turn back and stare. One gets off her treadmill and walks away. Quickly.
I take her treadmill.
It is at that moment that I realize that this swine flu paranoia has its upside.
I will try this in the Safeway line.
