12:20:2002 Entry: "Ann : Crowtard"


Um...I don't think it's allergies after all, I mean it might be part of it, but I'm also nauseous and lightheaded. And I have muscle aches in my arms. It's unusual for me to get a cold this time of year. Well, the good thing is if it is West Nile, I think it would make me immune from it in the future. Most people DO NOT die from it, most people when they get it don't even know they got it, and the others just think they have a flu/regular virus. Dying is mostly for those who have weakened immune systems or the very old.

Most likely it's just a regular virus/cold. Unusual for me in the summer, but most likely.

The only reason West Nile is even a remote possibility is because a couple months ago there was this weird crow in our neighborhood. It acted strangely, retarded, and unafraid of humans. It didn't fly much, at first we attributed it to being a young crow, just learning. But there's lots of crows in our neighborhood and we never experienced a crow like that before. It seemed stupid and sqwauked a lot. It would sit on our cars and in our bushes and not move when we came out. We nicknamed it "Crowtard". Then Crowtard disappeared, and a day or two later Stan heard a report that a dead crow had been found on the east side with West Nile. Scary. Yeah, and I've been bitten by mosquitos.

But it's still pretty unlikely. Stan's just paranoid. I guess I'd feel the same if he was sick instead.


Hopefully it's just an ordinary cold and you get better soon, otherwise you should see a doctor.

I hate doctors. I'll just give it'll probably go away. Most things do.
