FLASH!! New Medical Theory stuff!!

Last week, I had a cold.  This should come as no surprise, considering the number of hands we shake, grab-bars we grab in the buses, etc.   
For many years, it has been believed, supported by many so-called 'studies,' that the transmission and symptoms of an upper respiratory infection were due to 'viruses,' little teeny, tiny, eensy, weensy things you can hardly see, even if you are young and don't have to use reading glasses very much.
So being a Doctor, with its accompanying wisdom, I was careful to wash my hands, use a separate hand-towel, divert my sneezes, and so on.  I felt that I had been a success when Paula didn't suffer from the same infection.  Little did know...
She informed me this morning that the difference was that I lacked the will power that she possesses. 
Will power?!  Will Power??!!  Why didn't I think of that??!
In the end, hundreds of years of medical science, turned on their head.
We hope you can muster the will power to remain healthy.
Dave & Healthy Paula

Brandon tells me that all of the time. Maybe that's why I'm sick with a cold and he's not.

I have no willpower and neither does Ben. We wallow in disease together.
