It’s that time of year again when friends and followers on Facebook and Twitter and my colleagues at work are all claiming to have flu. Influenza.Bird flu virus
It would seem that the minute anyone has anything other than a runny nose they immediately claim they have flu.
If you are putting up a Facebook Status, it’s not flu.
If you are eating breakfast, it’s not flu.
If you fancy a cup of tea. It’s not flu.
If you are watching tv, it’s not flu.
Here’s a really good rule of thumb that someone told me a couple of years ago:
If someone told you that there was gold buried in your back garden and you can’t be bothered to get up and go and dig it up, then you’ve probably got flu.
