Because it made me laugh

I was reading an article on MSN Health & Fitness tonight and did not expect a bit of humor thrown in. This made me laugh out loud in surprise:

No-nonsense tips

Finally, a few ideas you can use and share in the workplace to help stop the spread of flu germs:

  • If you know you're sick with the flu, stay home.
  • Get a flu shot, which not only protects you but helps prevent contagion.
  • Within a day of becoming ill, ask your doctor about antiviral medications, which can shorten the episode and contain the virus.
  • Be especially cautious between late December and early March, the peak of flu season.
  • Sneeze or cough into your elbow, not into your hands.
  • Clean phones, doorknobs and desktops with alcohol swabs.
  • Throw used tissues away!
  • Wash your hands and face often with hot, soapy water.
  • During the flu season, never let anyone lick your keyboard.
