“LOVE is essentially self-communicative: those who do not have it catch it from those who have it….”
Some may have heard of the other kind of flu but word on the streets is that there is another kind of flu which is highly contagious, spreading wildly, reaching epidemic proportions worldwide and with no known cure. It’s the Love Flu Virus Epidemic.
Here’s what you need to know about it:
Incubation Period: Unknown, sudden onset.
Duration: Never ending.
Symptoms: increased respirations, increased heart rate, occasional benign palpitations, satiated with the fullness of who you are leading to decreased appetite, given to smiling spontaneously, flushed cheeks due to a radiant glow about you, frequent and prolonged bouts of an overwhelming sense of well being.
Treatment: Shower yourself and others with love liberally. Avoid hand washing, showering with a friend is optional.
Prognosis: Incurable. Once exposed to love, you take it with you wherever you go forevermore. And you are inexplicably compelled to pass it on.

postscript: As Patrick Swayze’s character said in Ghost just before he returned to the non-physical realm, “it’s amazing…the love inside, you take it with you”. I feel your intrinsic love shining through dear Mr. Swayze, may your fans and loved ones know this, too.
