Bugged here

The eight-year-old brought a bug home last week, has been complaining of a runny nose, sore throat and a headache. He's been moody and tired, too.

And now Mom has it. He was just starting to come around late this past week when he decided to be more affectionate than he has been. This should have been the tip-off that the virus was ready to move to fresh meat, having exhausted its welcome with its current host. The little guy laid a big, sloppy, wet, dog-like kiss on me.

Bingo, viral load delivered.

All that nagging about sneezing into his inner elbow and handwashing for naught. For all their minuteness, viruses are incredibly savvy and smarter than the average mother.

Now who will be my object of viral tranmission, I mean, affection?

Stay healthy and keep your distance, whereever you are. Heh.
