disease of the week
Conversation with my friend Barbara, who had the same virus (human, not computer) as me:
Me: It's just a mix of really weird symptoms.
B: I think it attacked every part of my body.
Me: What do you suppose it is? I bet it's some kind of terrorism!
B: Bio-chemical, I bet.
Me: Oh no, I have anthrax!
B: Anthrax? You couldn't come up with something newer than that?
Me: Hey, I'm an old school kinda girl.
B: I'm almost embarassed for you for saying that. It's so last year.
Me: Well, at least I didn't say Mad Cow. Maybe it's Monkeypox.
Me: SARS is passť.
B: West Nile.
Me: Now there's a disease that never goes out of fashion.
Sad thing is, most of our conversations are like that.
