You may have heard, Vancouver, Canada has invited the world to come and visit for the 2010 Olympics. To ready ourselves we are cleaning up the streets and brushing up on our manners. Particularly how we sneeze in both public and private. Right now with the H1N1 flu circulating like fruit flies over a apple we are being inundated with self help ideas to stop it in it's track. Besides the obligatory amounts of hand washing, and sanitizing we are all doing our limited best to change the way we sneeze. Not into our hands as we were taught for generations, but into our elbows. This involves some creative maneuverings, and generally leaves us looking like a pretzel covered in snot. The world is coming to visit, and we must be on our best behaviour, just as if Great Aunt Edna was coming for a surprise visit. Pity the poor unfortunate who standing in line, fails to properly contort himself into a yoga pose, and opts instead to spray all of those around him with his "highly contagious" vaporized phlegm. Besides immediately being forced to vacate his place in the line due to the sudden shuffling of bodies far and away from him, he is likely to be escorted out the door by security. If that isn't enough to change his habits, then the affronted looks, and clicking tongues, should persuade him to grab that elbow and stuff his face into it the next time he even feels the slightest urge to sneeze. The world is coming to visit, and we must be on our best behaviour, so pass the next elbow please.
