Today I was feeling sweeter than normal and decided to give the News Readin' Husband a call during lunch to see what he was working on for our evening enjoyment.
Our conversation went a little something like this...
Me: Hey, what's the story of the day?
Mr. NR: Oh, just sitting at some health department press conference talking about swine flu. Did you know that pigs pass the flu virus - just like humans? Interesting.
Me: Did you ask if you can catch anything else from the little buggers? Or any other livestock for that matter? I mean, seriously. We need to know.
Mr. NR: (snidely) No, I did not ask if we can catch things from other livestock. I also didn't ask how fast a cheetah really runs. It was a press conference about swine flu.
Me: Whatever. Hmph.
Well, that's the last time I try to help him create the next media frenzy.
Off to figure out why we can't just call it pig flu,
Mrs. News Readin'
