Please Stand By

Monitor Mix HQ was hit with a bout of the flu.
So, in lieu of a full post, check out a piece I did for NPR's Day to Day.
I'll be doing more contributions for them in the future and will try to let MM readers know about it before hand.

Why, thank you.

I hope you recover soon. Try crushing some garlic with an abalone shell and soaking it in a jar of vinegar by your bed.

Here is the winning strategy for flu season perfected by yours truly: Go to the clinic. Ask for a flu shot and tell them you faint when you get a shot. They will then lie you down, feed you a cookie, and poke you while you are distracted by how good the cookie is. Then, because you said you would faint, they'll insist you lie there for a bit. A free 15 minute nap!
