I tell them exactly how I feel.  I made some lady cry once.  Too bad.

Packed in tight, standing room only, she turned and coughed right in my face.

I bet she still remembers it.

Thank you city of Phoenix for sending my wife home with the worst cold, sore throat and fever she's had in five years! My entire weekend is ruined. Tonight's plans AND Second Christmas scheduled for Sunday has now been postponed until..  next weekend? Who knows because this demon desert virus has made itself right at home. In My Home!  My weekend is completely ruined!  Thanks hun!

I was supposed to go in for surgery in early November. I still have a cough after having to cancel the procedure because I had come down with this heavy cold. Now, they won't even consider giving me anesthesia until March.

Bitch of a cold.

That is awful. I'd planned on getting that real ID thing the first week in Jan, then I thought about my surgery booked for Jan 10 and decided I would be better served to avoid a crowded DMV that close to surgery. I did NOT want it cancelled.

During my months long trip to Asia, China was relatively clean, although I didn't go to the poorest areas (off limits).  The far West where the Uiger Muslims are was fithly, as was Tibet.  My understanding is the flus come from the South part of the country where it's historically poorer and typically more humid.  As dirty as Tibet was, apparently it's too cold much of the year for viruses to get much of a foothold.

Nepal was a cleaner version of India, still had cows walking around, but it's also colder there, and smaller.  Easier to contain.  And I only went to the capital, I think the rest of the country is very poor and lacks sanitation.

India was the worst.  Unbelievable really.  Children in the middle of the street picking seeds out of cow shit to take home for dinner, everything in the country - every post, fence, building, telephone pole, everything - was yellow from the waist down. 

Thailand was the cleanest.  Very clean.  The only place I'd eat the street food (although I did eat the street food in Xingjiang - that's all there was much of the time, and I stayed with uncut fruit and lamb shish-kabob cooked over the fire while I watched).

I read a little about the early explorers.  Europe was filthy a rat infested mess at the time too, but at least they were used to the diseases at home - how they didn't all immediately die when they went to Africa, Asia, and the Middle East I'll never know.

And of course they brought smallpox, etc, to the Americas and killed probably 90% of the indigenous population here.

That explains it.
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

@PolkaDot Explains what exactly, being an ass or being a grouchy ass? or is there something else on your "not so right" according to Bart, mind?
