Swine flu?

We heard before traveling that we would be stopped at our final destination and be checked for symptoms of Swine flu. So we were doing what we could as we were landing to not be caught with a sudden temperature or sickly looking appearance. And what we were told would happen did happen. A few people boarded our plane covered head to toe in hazmat suits, goggles and gloves. One of the guys had on a pair of ski goggles!

So we waited as everyone had their temperature taken by the black radar gun! Everyone was ok on our plane. If anyone was suspicious though they would have been quarantined along with three rows in front of them and three rows behind.

It reminded me of a time in elementary school when the fire department came to our school to teach us stop, drop and roll . . . They also suited up in their fireproof garb so we would know what they look like if ever caught in a fire. They asked us "Now are you going to be afraid if someone dressed like this ever comes to rescue you?" All the kids said, "NO!" But secretly I was scared of how they looked . . . all covered up, huge masks on, big boots. I was a little scared of these goggled faces too!
