Four Hours of My Life That I'll Never Get Back...

In A Matter of Chance, we get to see several flu victims (including Cressida). Cressy's parents have died of it, and then the entire household in Holland (or is it Friesland??) comes down with it.

Dr. van der Stevejinck usually gets a flu vaccine every year...they offer them at work. I think I've only ever gotten a flu shot once. I'm much more likely to just take my chances. On Monday, I was wishing that this had been the year I'd gotten one. I spent hours in the waiting room at the doctor's trying to avoid catching what every other person in the place seemed to have. I don't know if it's the flu going around, but about half the people there were hacking up a lung and the rest just looked pathetic.  So far, I haven't been showing symptoms, but every little ache or sniffle makes me wonder...am I getting it?
