So, I just got a call from H. He had landed in Charlotte, ready to make his connection to Austin, and was calling as planned. However, fucking students are still fucking stupid, and thus, he had two more students who refused to stay home from school despite having flu symptoms. And after H had checked in for his Greensboro to Charlotte leg of the flight, while he was waiting, he began to feel a little tickle in his throat. By the time he landed in Charlotte and talked to me, he had a full-blown fever, sinuses full of snot, and was feeling miserable.
So, H is not joining me here in Austin. He is paying $160 to rent a car and drive from Charlotte back to Greensboro instead. He tried to get his ticket changed, to see if there were a way he could change the Monday ticket to today, but that would have cost over $500. To take a 90 mile flight. So, he’ll be driving instead.
He plans to go to the after hours clinic tomorrow morning to find out what he has, but at this point, we’re assuming that it’s H1N1. I guess it’s almost a good thing that he has it now, and will be non-contagious (hopefully) by the time I get back. It kind of insulates me, I guess, since he’ll be basically immune to it for the rest of this season and I don’t really go many places, being unemployed and all.
So. Stupid children passed the H1N1 (or some other disease, but probably H1N1) to my husband, and now he has to miss my brother’s wedding. Bullshit.
