Why Have A Flu Shot????

Wednesday, November 06, 2013

A friend sent me this advice and thought I should pass it on:

FLU SEASON - Read till the end

To avoid it...

Eat right!
Make sure you get your daily dose of fruit and veggies.

Take your vitamins and bump up your vitamin C.

Get plenty of exercise because it builds your immune system.

Walk for at least an hour a day,
go for a swim, take the stairs instead of the lift, etc.

Wash your hands often.
If you can't, keep a bottle of antibacterial stuff around.

Get lots of fresh air.
Open doors & windows whenever possible.

Try to eliminate as much stress from your life as you can.

Get plenty of rest.


Take the doctor's approach

Think about it...
When you go for a flu jab, what do they do first?

They clean your arm with alcohol...


Because Alcohol KILLS GERMS.


I walk to the pub. (exercise)

I put lime in my vodka...(fruit)

Celery in my Bloody Mary (veggies)

Drink outdoors on the patio..(fresh air)

Tell jokes and laugh....(eliminate stress)

Then I pass out. (rest)

The way I see it...

If you keep your alcohol levels up,
flu germs can't get you!


'A shot in the glass
is better than one in the a$$!'

Live Well -
Laugh Often -
Love Much .

    Thanks for the smile. I had to share it with some of my email addresses.

I was going to mow the lawn this afternoon, for what should be the last time this year. But, my son did it this morning. I guess I should put that energy into getting some housework exercise. ugh, hate housework exercise. do like how things look when the exercise routine is completed tho'. Sunshiny barely 50 and a little breezy.
Be careful while applying your flu inhibitor system!!

    Okay. So my pastor is giving his sermon on the evils of drinking, and he holds up a glass of the good stuff. He drops a worm into the glass. And the worm swims around for a little while, but pretty soon he stops and sinks to the bottom. Pastor pulls himself to his full height and thunders, "You see what alcohol will do to you!" And from the middle pew comes the answer: "Yeah. If you drink you won't get worms."

Or flu.

Thank you for the springboard to one of my favorite jokes.
