Me, despite the fact that I am a tutor (which means lots of intimate sessions with
kids of all ages), I hardly ever get sick-maybe once a year or even less.
Often I can feel something coming on in the evening, expect to wake up feeling
awful, and the next morning I am just fine. I imagine my antibodies etc. are germs’
worst nightmares-a virus gets into my bloodstream only to be confronted with about
200 antibodies with nice long razor-sharp teeth which promptly chew it to bits. I’ve
often wondered if I’m alone or if others usually manage to avoid the kinds of things
which leave coworkers as helpless heaps of quivering protoplasm suffering horribly
in their beds.
