Unseasonable won't work - it's winter in some parts of the globe you know and it will be winter here soon enough! H1N1 sounds like a very short football score not a serious illness. Just live with swine flu like the rest of us have to and get a grip!
dh informed me when i got home that the dcs had been watching a Peppa pig episode where George has flu. My ds (6) said it must be swine flu with George being a pig and all.
The original emergenge of the pandemic brought calls for the virus to be renamed as it was putting customers off buying pork. Even the WHO changed it to H1N1 flu. It never caught on tho, cos the media liked swine flu. So we are stuck with it.
I thought that many/most strains of flu originated from pigs, because their immune systems are similar to ours viruses can jump species quite easily and because in many parts of the world people and pigs live in close proximity there is plenty of opportunity for a virus to make the jump. So I've been thinking for a while that "swine" flu isn't really enough to differentiate this one from all the others.
Actually since my throat started to really hurt a couple of hours ago I don't really care what it's called so long as I don't have it. I really don't want to be coping with an over-active 5 yr old and a 18 m old when I'm feeling ill and DH is working abroad. <shakes with fear>
