I put the joke in the title, as last time I wrote about bird flu symptoms I got a lot of search-engine hits, and I felt a little bad about that, as it was a joke. So is this, but…
At work, one of my genius colleagues has spent a lot of time reading about bird flu, studying the medical experience of bird flu, and is the de-facto emergency expert on bird flu for our hospital. He’s a terrific resource, and very pleasant to work with.
And, he asked for the entire month of February off. We’ve kidded him about doing it because he knows something, and he laughs. But he’s not working next month.
All I know is, if it happens in February, he’s got some explaining to do. Probably from home, though.
