Some area schools have cancelled games due to too many sick players, hospital ERs are being overrun, and the shot may be less effective than we had hoped.
I came across a story written by Pamela Druckerman in the New York Times, titled 'What You Learn In Your 40s.' It caught my attention (because someone I know is in their 40s.) I read it, laughed out loud, and realized all of her points were right on the money. Here are some of the highlights.
