Apologies dear reader, but your genial host has been laid low for seven straight days by that dreaded curse of modern civilisation, Man-Flu.
A whole week of Paracetemol and lying down doing absolutely nothing
BTW: What is it with the Influenza virus? Does it not have better things to do?
You get it in your system from other people's sneezes or from infected surfaces. It then breaks into your cells, raids them for amino acids or whatever, makes lots of new influenza virus. This leaves your cells wrecked which is what gives you the coughs and sneezes, severely screws up your immune regulation which is why you feel so comprehensively lousy.
That's it. That's all the 'flu virus does. Invade, replicate, move on. What's the point?
