Muni Grunge

Also known as 'Muni-itis.' Definition: Any virus or bacteria that I've gotten in the last two years after riding on the L Taravel trains, stuffed with plague carrying people, most of whom do not understand the use of a Kleenex or hand to cover coughs and sneezes.

I have it now. I am not happy about this. The only positive is being at home for the day. And there's something to be said for being too tired and achy to do housework or exercise. A free day, as it were. I did bring some expense report stuff home to work on, receipts to sort out and put in chronological order by specific trip/purpose...but haven't touched it yet. Too tired and achy to focus. I slept in till 11:00, woke up coated in felines (five out of eight), dehydrated and with that extra body ache that comes from it (and from lying in bed for over 16 hours). Took an extra hot shower, an Aleve and many glasses of water. I'm now watching reruns of CHARMED on TNT and keeping my promise to start posting again.

Muni Grunge. Why don't people cover their mouths when they sneeze? Do they think it's a GOOD thing to leave splatters of infectuous saliva on the seat rail in front of them? Does anyone really think that snorting up their snot is a better option than blowing their noses and disposing of the remains in a tightly crumpled Kleenex put in a trashcan? Why? WHY?!!!
Inquiring and feverish minds want to know.

    Hmmm ... perhaps there is an etymological connection between "Muni" and "Mucus?"

    You might have a point. 'Cause there's enough mucus spattered on the Muni to do something REALLY gross with it!
