A Winter Parody

I’ve been thinking about all of my sick co-workers, family and friends and stocking up on Nyquil, Dayquil, Theraflu and lemon and ginger tea.  One year I spent every single break from school trying to get well so I could go back to work.  Every. Single. Break!  So, the next year I decided to get my first flu shot as a preventative measure.  That was the second year I spent every single break trying to get well so I could return to work.

Thankfully I have been healthy this year, but people around me are dropping like flies.  This little parody is in honor of them.  So muster up your best Johnny Mathis or Karen Carpenter impression and sing along ~

Body aches and pains,

Sniffles, fever and chills,

H1N1 strains, Wait and see,

Doctors on the way to save the day,

With meds.  Made for you and for me.

It’s that time of year

When the world gets the flu,

Every cough you hear seems to say,

Better watch out!

The next victim could be you,

And these germs of mine,

Spreading all the time,

Bring to you and yours the same thing too!

Wishing Everyone a Healthy Cold and Flu Season!

Jesus

Two turtle doves
Old and New Testaments

Three French hens
Faith, Hope, and Charity

Four calling birds
Four Gospels

Five golden rings
The first five books of the Old Testament, the Pentateuch, which records the history and laws of ancient Israel

Six geese a-laying
Six days of Creation

Seven swans a-swimming
Seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, or the Seven Sacraments

Eight maids a-milking
Eight beatitudes

Nine ladies dancing
Nine fruits of the Holy Spirit

Ten lords a-leaping
Ten Commandments

Eleven…
