Sick already?

And so it begins.  I can feel my first cold coming on after only one month on the road.  It always happens when you are exposed to a larger group of people, especially when some of them have very low standards of cleanliness!  out-sick-with-the-fluNo matter how many time a day you wash your hands, somehow you still pick up some germ!  I see people sneezing into their hand, then open the door without any thought for what they are doing.  I can’t walk around all day with a tissue in my hand so as not to touch anything can I?  Maybe use exam gloves?  There’s just no way to avoid being exposed to something.

On a lighter note, I went to Bullwinkle’s again, but this time I went into the lounge called “The Bog”.  Those of you not from Maine, that pretty much defines 75% of the topography in this state!  You should be here during “Black Fly” season!  Those little buggers get together and try to carry off small children!

dbfdfI’m not much of a bar person, so I went in with low expectations.  As I opened the door, an elderly couple were coming out.  That raised my eyebrows a little.  I went in, after holding the door for them, and found it to be the standard fare for a lounge, albeit very clean!  There were people of all ages having a good time.  No load music, no smoking, and generally just a good vibe.  It’s refreshing to go in for a drink and not have the usual “College” crowd stumbling around like idiots.  I’m not judging them, I used to be the same.  It’s just as I have gotten older, I prefer something a little more subdued.  Everyone was a little boisterous, but that’s to be expected when alcohol is being consumed!  I was there about an hour, and I had a nice time.  Maybe I got the bug there?  Naahh…
