Tip of The Day  

In case it ever comes up that someone you know (in my case: my boss) tells you that he's been diagnosed with Walking Pneumonia, don't respond with "That sucks, I once had the Boogie Woogie Flu."

One: You'll look like an uncaring jackass

Two: It's nowhere near as witty as you think it is in your head

Three: There are some people who've never even heard of the song, so you'll just get blank stares, or an inquiry into just what that is.

Interesting sidenote about me. Total truth, as a kid (I'd say I was 11 or 12) I was diagnosed with Cat Scratch Fever. Amazingly, it was an actual disease

I have to admit, I am one of those people who never heard of the song. Still, it's funny.

Never heard of the song, but I agree that if I heard someone make that comment, I'd probably be laughing as hard as I am picturing your response followed by crickets.

You know you have made it when your sense of humor and intellect exceed that of your boss. Oh - and don't forget the post concussion stress disorder. Dang you when not the easiest son to raise (car accidents, stiches, cats with knives..... and the list goes on).

"Okay, best way to stop a ten-story godlike monster from destroying existence? I'm gonna go with hitting, you have anything?"
