    Choose your partners, one and All,
    Aspirin, Advil, or Tylenol !

    Now fling those covers with all you've got,One minute cold, the next minute HOT,

    Circle right to the side of the bed,
    Grab the tissues and Sudafed.

    Back to the middle and don't goof off;
    Hold your stomach and cough, cough, cough.

    Forget about slippers, dash down the hall,
    Toss your cookies in the shower stall.

    Remember others on the brink;
    Wash your hands; wash the sink.

    Wipe the doorknob, light switch too,
    By George, you've got it, you're doing the Flu !

    Some like it cold, some like it hot;
    If you like neither, get the shot .

    Sorry if some of this was rather graphic. This came on the internet, someone sent it to me and I had to share it. It came with cute pics too but I couldn't send the whole thing. Thought it was cute anyway. Sorry for any of you who may have just gotten over it or have it now.

    Hope none of you do. I know I got my reg,. flu shotsl. I know there is controversy on the shots and some have reactions to it and such but it surely has helped me quite a bit.

    Blessings and hugs to awl !

    Icky, but funny!

    I can't have flu shots (contraindicated for my disease), so I hafta be REALLY careful!

    (Thank you for washing your hands, & covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze in public, everyone! People like me who can't have a flu shot, still hafta go to the store!)

    Very cute! Thanks, granni....

    Pippi, I agree with you...I can't get it either, and hate going to the store when the check-out person is telling you about how sick they are!!! Just happy that I rarely go shopping....never feel that way about it in the spring/summer though:(

    Our WalMart at least has the disinfectant wipes to wipe down the cart handle with, and also your hands. I really like that. They've been doing that here for the past 3 years now once flu season hits.

    I miss the paper towels in the public bathrooms...I know, not eco friendly...but at least they could be used to open the doors...........Jole

    Got the flu? Dance anyway.

    (Anyone beginning an exercise program should discuss the matter
    with his or her health care professional.)

    Bow to your partner, corner too.
    Sorry to hear you have the flu.

    Allemande left, then Do-see-do.
    Swing her fast, now swing her slow.

    Ladies to the center and form a star.
    Gents stay put right where you are.

    Outta breath? Try not to whine.
    Be glad your flu is not the swine.

    Nope, did not write the first one. I swear on a stack of baled hay I have
    never written light verse using the term "Sudafed".

    When I was a teenager we used to folk dance and square dance a lot.
    Did some folk dancing at a Sons of Norway Festival a few years. There
    was an interval of about half a century in between.

    So far as I know, all folk dances are round, square or line. Contrary to
    popular belief, there is no legal requirement that one wear cowboy
    boots and jeans while line dancing.

    If you go to Youtube you can find a wonderful example of Greek
    folk dancing w/ Lucille Ball.

    Loved your other FLU square dance call. Very good !! I knew you would enjoy the other one too.

    Jole - Thanks for the peek :) ! I know it was sort f graphic but the devil made me do it :) !!Sorry you cannot take the flu shot but know others that cannot either.

    Not sure if we are going to take the swine flu shot, even if it is given to us older folds:) ! For one thing it is to new . I will just try and be extra careful..

    Hugs to awl,

    What's the next verse???

    Surely there's a word that rhymes with "complications"???

    Hi Granni,

    That was so hilarious
    Even if it was a little precarious!

    I enjoyed reading each verse
    Even if it bordered on being slightly perverse!

    Warm hugs,

    Erika :)

    But --

    voodoo tea needs to be worked into it! Some people here have sworn by it...

    I admit, I still haven't had the guts to try it ever tho.
