Everyone I know, including my wife, has had the flu shot and each has had a very bad cold. Probably jinxing myself but I haven't had one in over 10 years and have never had the flu or even a really bad cold. (knocks on wood). 12/27 8:31 am
Not sure where this one came from. Almost back to 100%. I had better knock on wood too. Sounds like you are one of the lucky ones. Let’s pass it around! 12/29 1:46 pm
