Driving the Porcelain Bus
Don’t you hate it when you go to a party and then you find out someone there is sick?
Why are they there and why do they think they’re the special ones that are allowed to expose others to an emergency-ward bubble of contagious microbes?
Unfortunately, we were at such a party earlier this week and are now paying the price. Our youngin’ was a geyser of epic proportions last night and just as faithful as the one in Yellowstone.
Email sent to my team this AM due to the 2 hours of sleep had this morning:

Subject: I’m out sick today…
… I’ll be working from home for 2 hours this AM and taking 6 hours sick. My little one has the stomach flu (the wife and I have been up all night tending to him).
Holiday Party Tips: Please DO NOT go to holiday parties where there are SICK people present. Or, better yet, if YOU are sick… and, YOU know you’re sick… please keep your infectious germs to yourself and stay home. You do not owe it to anyone to be there. Nana can get her much-anticipated oven mitt another day and Uncle Sven will be fine with one less pair of socks this Xmas. So, do us ALL a favor and quarantine yourself immediately. (Partiers down and out from this one party alone: 5 people… driving the porcelain bus).
