"The Flu Bug"

About 6 days ago, my children excitedly came down the stairs claiming they had "found the flu bug". Curtis exclaimed, "Ya, it's in our room!"

I skeptically say, oh really? What does it look like?

They begin describing it. It's kind of red. And it has spots. Ya, it has spots.

How many spots?

We couldn't count, but there were black spots. It was little.

Sounds like you are describing a lady bug, to me.

No, it was the FLU BUG!

This had become a little joke around the house and amongst various family members, until 2 days ago....
While doing laundry, I too, found "the flu bug". Exactly as they had described! And sure enough, I woke up the next morning coughing, with a sore throat, and, well, I guess sick. As some people might call it. So, now, after my experience with "the flu bug", I will be a skeptic no more. Watch out, he's out there.
