Contagious?

Is a soar throat a symptom of dying?  Terrence gave me sick.  It’s funny how tiny symptoms that I would otherwise shrug off are somewhat frightening to me in a superstitious kind of way.  It makes me feel silly to even think it.  What if those masked avengers are onto something?  I sure hope that Terrence doesn’t have the swine flu.  Ahhhhhh!!!

Update: (May, 26) I quickly recovered from the sore throat and all fear of dying escaped.  But yesterday I developed a chest cold and my body is all sorts of sore.  Let the dying commence!
