We got stomach flu last week. I thought it was food poisoning, but after 48 hours Eric started throwing up too. Since food poisoning isnt contagious, it must have been stomach flu.

That totally sucked. We were each subjected to about 6 hours of serious pain and unpleasantness, plus we had to miss the Catacomb Halloween party. I was really looking forward to that.

On the up side, Ive taken Wednesday through Friday off. Im getting a lot of missed vacation all at once. Im a little trepidatious about the Samhain ritual on Friday, since it will by necessity be pretty solemn this year. But Im glad to have this time to reflect and be with the ones that matter most to me.

we missed you!!
We missed you guys at Catacomb on Saturday. I saw Ken (wearing his jammies) and he said that you having tummy difficulties. I have soooo been there. We spent more time at the Meeting Place because 4th Estate had the music up way too loud. It was fun, though. Would have been more fun had you been there.

Not stomach flu
Influenza doesn't infect the GI tract. I may have been another virus or a bacterium, or even a parasite, but not flu.

(Yeah, I'm nit-picking...)

Oh, yeah...
And food poisoning CAN be contagious, since your various efluvia were likely swimming with whatever pathogens that had been in your food. It would not be difficult for Eric to pick them up, especially if it was a virus.
