You know how you do something that you know is not going to be good for you, yet you do it anyway? Like eating an extra piece of cake? No, worse than that. Like having one too many drinks and then getting into a car? No, worse than that. Like running into rush hour traffic on the Beltway? THAT'S what I am talking about. What have I done? I watched Oprah again.
I think my chest is safe from perverts masquerading as bra fitters, but now I am completely freaked out about birdf flu. This is what Oprah's site says we should do to get ready:
-Stock your cabinets with enough canned goods to last four to five weeks.
-Stockpile your prescription drugs, if possible.
-Speak with city officials to make sure your community has enough chlorine on hand to purify the water, in case shipments stop coming. Many cities only keep enough chlorine on hand to last five to seven days.
-There are also many lessons we can learn from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Dr. Osterholm says. Americans need to be prepared to live without modern luxuries, and communities should have a plan to bury their dead in a timely, respectful manner.
Again, Oprah said it on her show so it must be true.
Kidding aside, this stuff is pretty scary.
