This Week in Janice: **BREAKING NEWS ALERT***

29 Apr

Drew and I have been having a grand ol’ time bridging the music divide — a post on that will come shortly — but in the mean time, I wanted to update you on the dire swine flu situation going on in the Chicago suburbs.

Claire & Janice

Subj: pandemic panic at suddath’s
Okay, My motto is like the Boy Scouts’-“Be Prepared”:
Well. as I am driving to Walgreen’s in lake Bluff to purchase face masks and hand sanitizer and medical disposable gloves and powder form VitaminC, what do I hear on my trusty reactionary AM radio station but that there are 9 confirmed cases of Mexican pig/bird flu in Chicagoland, including 1 in Lake County!!! They do not know what town in Lake County yet, so could it be Lake Forest? Not good to hear while one is driving. After finding that the Lake Bluff (Sweet little picturesque Lake Bluff next door) Walgreens is Out Of FACIAL MASKS, (but just got a new shipment of Jumbo sized boxes of gloves-Yeah!!-not even on the shelf yet!!) What do I hear but the same report, except, now one of the Mex pig flu cases is from Geneva, Il. where (redacted) lives and where (redacted) & I lunched a few days ago!!! So glad I got to see that adorable, picturesque town before the “Quarantine” goes into effect!!! Oh, that’s right. We don’t do that anymore…
SO how was your day in your part of the world?
Janice (Are we double digit in cases today if they count the Notre Dame kid in N.W.Indiana as 1 of ours? He’d make ten. Only 1 public school closed so far. Did you know that the famous 1918 Spanish flu is thought to have been a “swine flu”?)

    “SO how was your day in your part of the world?”

    Does she know you are still in the country?

    This was actually sent as a group email to me, some of her friends, and her cousin. That’s also why she signed it Janice and not “MOM”
