I looked hard at the word and tried to think about what I d write, using it as a timely. I do not actually feel like composing more about COVID-19. I cant think of ever experiencing an especially extreme viral illness; a couple of bouts of influenza that kept me in bed for a week, among which resulted in me quitting cigarette smoking, for a couple of months.
Up until now, Ive gotten fortunate. Vira havent affected my life in a harsh way. Theyre out there, waiting, hoping for me to walk right into them or for me to welcome them in.
I hope we never hear or check out or state the word infection more than we have in 2020. For the majority of us, that word has daily been top of mind, or at the very least, humming always in the background. Even if you believe its some sort of scam (and I know some of you do), its still an existence.

Did you know virus has five plural forms? The most proper (the properest) are infections and virusses.
How have viri impacted your life? Has a virus ever landed you in the medical facility?
