This is a brag post.  
My new flu is way cooler than yours. Srsly, my flu has blisters. Hands, feet, inside the mouth, my flu is awesome. It kicks all the other flus I've had square in the protein sheath. It may be a kiddy-flu, and the blisters may be small, and sure, it hasn't actually made me feel that unwell (beyond a sore throat) but its name is awesome - Hand Foot and Mouth Disease.

That's right. It's a disease. Not just a virus or flu, it's a disease. Told you it was the best.

In non-disease related bragging, I took a photo of some books Debbie and I have stories in:

Photobucket

Neat, huh?  And I replied to an email about including one of my stories in another anthology today.  And I'm working on a secret project which is shaping up very nicely.  In fact, I should be working on it now, blistered hands and all.

"My new flu is way cooler than yours."
Nope. I had it when I was 10. So there.

Although, my sympathies and all, because when I had it, I felt supremely terrible and everyone kept making jokes about whether to take me to the doctor or shoot me.

I know, I'm late to the party. I hadn't even *heard* of HFM until, like, Friday.

I do seem to have a very mild case - only 5 blisters of note on my hands and a few on each foot, and a bit of a sore throat and sniffles.

Fingers crossed nobody else in the family's going to be hit any worse!

I've known quite a few toddlers who've had it. You're the first adult I've heard of.

Also, your books look cool.
