Mr Furlong and I have been sick.
With a Head Cold.
Itchy scratchy cough.
But we are much better now. The worst lasted three days.
So I phoned our hairdresser to make an appointment for when we are really well. I explained we were still getting over the virus.
“Oh, don’t worry,” she said. “It’s in our family too – my Mom’s had the same thing. I’ll come round tomorrow and cut your hair. I don’t think I’ll get sick – I would have got it by now.”
The UK National Health website NHS Choices says to stay at home if you’ve got a virus and nurse yourself. Unless it settles somewhere, and changes to a bacterial infection.
Which means we’d never scientifically know if there was any kind of Viral epidemic, would we?
