Channelling Gandalf

“You shall not pass!”

The flu bug is invading my personal space.

Like a dragon nipping at my toes.

It comes within arms reach and I beat it back with a big stick.

So far I’ve been successful for it backs away with every swing or stomp I take in its direction.

I will not let it defeat me.

I will not let it devour my innards as it’s been doing with friends and family…

who continue to fall,

one

by

one.

I have bathed in a bubbled filled font, donned my battle armour of flannel, drunk peppermint tea elixir and consumed magical ginger tablets

So far with success.

I expect the battle to be a phlegmy one,

but as I crawl into bed at 7:30pm,

I am determined to be the victor.
