For years I have seen those annoying commercials. You know the ones where some poor excuse for a human being is sick, stumbling to the medicine cabinet, desperate for what ails them. The people on these commercials usually have red noses, puffy eyes and bad hair, saying stupid things like, “Even my hair hurts.”
I used to hate those commercials, but after this week, I empathize with those poor souls.
Last week, I suffered the same fate as many other Brunswick County residents and was bitten by the flu bug.
