I forgot to mention this in my post about playing poker Wednesday. In the Omahaha-8 game, I was sitting in the 10 seat -- next to the dealer, in other words. One of them coughed several times during his 30-minutes down.
Have you heard about the Swine flu? How do you think it is spread? Check this from a memo the HR people here at work just sent:
About the Swine Flu:
The Swine Flu, also known as the H1N1 virus, is caused by Type A Influenza and is a respiratory disease that originated in pigs. Humans can become infected with the virus by coming into contact with humans or pigs carrying Swine Flu. It is important to note that you cannot get Swine Flu from eating pork. This is an airborne illness, spread through coughing and sneezing.
I honestly think I might move or sit out the next time I'm sitting next to someone who is caughing and sneezing. Do you think I'm over-reacting?
