Patient Zero

I am Patient Zero for the GenCon ConCrud(tm) that everyone will be coming home with. Yes, I am THAT person who will go to the convention sick and spread their germs across a subsection of 50,000 gamers from all over the world.

Yes, the day I am to travel to GenCon, I wake up with a nasty head cold. It sucks. [Censored for whining.] The only thing keeping me amused is my SO running and getting me cold medicine and tissue and my apocalyptic fantasy that I'm about to become the progenitor of a pandemic illness that will sweep the world but leave me and some of my loved ones alive because they'd already been exposed through me.

They don't call me "Apocalypse Girl" for nothing.

Just make sure to sneeze on the staff and laugh menacingly.

Yaaay! I'm going to survive the coming Apocalypse. Cause I'm nowhere near Gen Con... :)

Don't worry, I hear that a Patient Zero in pandemic apocalypse stories usually survive with some strange immunity that ends up being the key to saving the survivors.

Hope your feeling better soon Jenn.

I see Steve beat me to the line about surviving the Apocalypse, since I'm not going to Gen Con myself. :( And if I was, I'd still give you a hug and all, regardless, 'cause you're cool, Apocalypse Girl.

In the meantime, have a good convention, try and get healthy (as if! 'cause I know how exhausting and stressful these conventions really are0, and console yourself by buying all kinds of neat gaming stuff and t-shirts and the like. :)

But by the magic of being my friend, you're immune!

Yep. You can.

Plus, I'm taking zinc, heading the whole thing off at the pass.

You may want to include "aging" in there as well. No sense living forever if you break a hip and can't move until someone finds you a decade later when your house goes up for auction.

Any chance of sharing that magic immunity with the guy who's crashing on your floor? ;-)
