5. Yea Verily

This morning my good friend, D, said, "190 people get the Swine Flu and everybody wants to wear a mask. 10 million people have AIDS and no one wants to wear a condom."

You know how sometimes you're trying and trying to make a certain point without belittling the other person's point of view but you really feel that there's something crucial they're missing even though you can't put your finger on it? That's how I've been feeling about the H1N1 hoopla. I understand it's something we should be aware of and watchful for. I do not understand how it is the trumpet that herald's the end of the world.

D put his finger on it. Do you really need a pandemic to fear? Look no further.

And put on a condom while you're looking.


  1. And 1100 people in America alone die EVERY DAY from smoking. And people bitch and moan about banning it in public places.

  2. You know how I feel about witty conciseness. I may be in love.
