Went to London and didn't get the swine flu

I came back from London last Tuesday and am still healthy.

And I didn't even wear a mask or wash my hands after shaking hands with the other fodorites! The other 4 people in my group didn't get it either.

However, I used disinfectant solution quite often and washed my hands regularly.

Just had to get that off my chest.

Cough.

Oink.

Actually, now we're worrying about what happens when it comes back in the autumn.

I've had it. It's a doddle.

You might have had it and just not noticed.

Schuler, glad to hear you're well. Any other details of the trip you'd care to share? Did you spill anything on Patrick?

Nikki & I have met and I hope to see her again in October when I return to Boston. She'd be the first one to take a mock-jab at herself over the spill on Patrick. Patrick, glad to hear you're unscathed. Was this meeting with Schuler in a pub, perchance? I ask because I'm unable to visualize CW in almost any other venue, with the possible exception of attending a cricket or football match.

I am you know. I passed my detectoring exams. You do this by watching lots of Scooby Doo.

It's always the janitor.

I always go for the one who's too nice and helpful from the outset. It's never the one who glooms and glowers a lot.

I'm with Patrick here - Much as I like, and admire the whole meerkat strategy, advertising agencies should not be adding words to dictionaries.

Simples? Meerkat strategy? Advertising agencies?
