Truism: what goes around comes around;
Parable: we reap what we sow;
Threat: what goes up must come down;
Hexagram: the Tao of the work is in the Tao of the working.
Hey wait a minute--how'd that get in there?
All I know is, flu season is upon us so be sure to have your flu vaccination especially if you're in a high-risk group.
And be sure to:
wash your hands often but not compulsively, wear your hat and mittens--outside, not inside, unless your furnace should conk out, and steam your schnoze whenever possible.
Use zinc lozenges; drink liquids, freshen your longjohns; exercise several times a week, always wear goloshes when puddle-stomping, and stop wasting time reading this fluff when you should be fluffing pillows for a long winter's nap.
Those sugarplums can't dance by themselves, you know.
Because deep inside, without my having to tell you, you know that whatever goes around is coming for you, you're reaping now what you've sown, and what goes up will be your temperature which will come down eventually and leave you on the road to recovery and soon slogging back to your Tao's work...bushy-tailed if not bright-eyed.
For after all, the early bird can catch the worm while saving nine stitches in a timely fashion, and all will be right with the world as long as you keep your feathers dry this flu season.
I hope you do!
Shh-h-h-h...sugarplums at work...
