How To Avoid The
Eat right!
Make sure you get your daily dose of fruits and veggies.

Take your vitamins and bump up your vitamin C.

Get plenty of exercise because exercise helps build your immune system.

Walk for at least an hour a day…

Go for a swim…

Take the stairs instead of the elevator, etc.

Wash your hands often.

If you can’t wash them, keep a bottle of antibacterial stuff around.

Get lots of fresh air.
Open doors & windows whenever possible.

Try to eliminate as much stress from your life as you can.

Get plenty of rest.


Take the doctor’s approach.

Think about it…

When you go for a flu shot, what do they do first?

They Clean your arm with alcohol…


Because Alcohol KILLS GERMS…


I walk to the liquor store… (exercise)
I put lemon in my water and lime in my Corona or Rum’n’Coke…(fruit)
Or drink wine…(grapes = fruit)
Celery in my Bloody Mary… (veggies)
Drink outdoors on the bar patio…(fresh air)
Tell jokes, laugh….(eliminate stress)
Then pass out. (rest)


The way I see it…

If you keep your alcohol levels up
flu germs
can’t get you!

My grandmother always said…
‘A shot in the glass
is better than one in the ass!’

Live Well and Laugh Often!

  1. brilliant!

    I was reading all of the things to do to avoid the flu, and I was thinking "sh!t, I'll just get the damned flu for hell sakes!"

  2. lol. your grandmother is a funny lady. may you kill all your germs. especially with a little one in 1st grade. schools are like petri dishes….

  3. : )

    My grandmother was more violent that yours. She used to say, "A shot in the glass is better than two in the head."

  4. I did all that and I am just getting over a week and a half old cold! uuurrrgggghhhhhhhhh…………..

  5. LMAO! THAT is so perfect! I think I will get started now…who cares that it is only 9:33 a.m. Those damn flu germs could be hiding anywhere. I need to stay one step ahead of them!

    FABULOUS post!

  6. Hahahaha love it!

    I KNEW my hot toddies were for more than my enjoyment and a quick slip into sleeping bliss! This was awesome! Thanks!

  7. as your unofficial favorite pharmacist I can only tell you that I haven't gotten the flu in years. well, since I started drinking wine in the evenings anyway… I think you may be on to something…

  8. Hahha, this is perfect. It's too bad I'm a light weight and have kids to take care of or I'd spend my days "warding off the flu".

  9. Great post. I'm glad you have taken a light hearted approach to a serious problem. We must all fight this flu. I saw that almost 100 children have now died from the swine flu. Anyway, stay healthy and happy. Send fruit baskets!

  10. Haha! That's a good one.

    You forgot the most important way to avoid flu. Don't panic. 😀
