If the aporkalypse is going to strike me down I want to document my naivety here for prosperity sake. Right now I am not worried about H1N1/Swine Flu because in my lifetime I have laughed in the face of Small Pox, Avian Flu, West Nile, SARS and Ebola.
I have licked batteries, crossed a street without authorization from the little walking man, enjoyed the mystery meat within the McRib, routinely consume expired yogurt and eggnog, ate Listeria contaminated meat, stood in front of the microwave all the while I am warming something up still inside its plastic container. I have been to the edge, looked over and turned around. After all of that I am still around to tell my tale.
But, if in a one year from now this pandemic has devastated the population then let it be known that I was really, really wrong. Sorry about that.
