Okay. Still feeling lousy and just took my temp - 101.6. I should stay at home, right? Really irresponsible to go out and possibly spread germs . . . Agree?

Why do I feel I should be dragging myself out to vote? I feel so guilty. But I just don't think it is responsible to expose others to this mess . . .

I should stay home, right? Please voice your thoughts. I just keep thinking - what if my elderly parents were out voting and some jerk showed up and they got sick b/c someone felt they had to vote . . .

If you are just going out to vote I would still vote.......I am sure there are a lot of people out there spreading germs.
It is really nice of you to think of other people.

Feel better......Have some soup

Ani - no pass from me! So sorry you are feeling so under the weather - but girl, get your butt up and go vote!!!

Wear gloves and don't lean in to close to talk to anyone and you won't spread your germs!

You can always stop by the pharmacy and get one of those masks just to be sure. Gloves is also a good idea. They sell those there too.

Great idea - wonder if they get upset if you show up w/ part of your face covered at a voting site? I actually have some masks - for mowing the lawn - allergy problems . . .

I just don't want anyone else to get what I have.

Hey, LakesideAnnie!!! Yes, I will take more tylenol. I still have enuff time - maybe my fever will go down more in a couple of hours . . .

Get my mask, tylenol, chicken soup, green tea, Purelle, sanitizing wipes . . . kleenex, non-latex gloves . . .

Now, surely I will not spread germs all over if I am careful.
