Wine Flu

Well, flu season is almost upon us and it seems like a good time to examine what has worryingly become a common sickness year round in the log cabin.

Wine flu is perhaps the most common ailment amongst the cabin crew, with a spike in cases every weekend. it is a disease that is indiscriminate of age or gender. Early symptoms of wine flu include impeared motor skills, slowed reaction times, slurred speech and verbal diahorraea. The early symptoms are often accompanied by a feeling of lightheadedness and well being and the patient will not realise they are ill, but if unchecked these syptoms can worsen and result in nausea, headaches, loss of balance, double vision and, in severe cases, in delirium or in the patient becoming comatose. Here is a picture of a member of our own cabin crew afflicted by the later stages of wine flu.

Luckiy the recovery period is usually only a day, otherwise Fran and Netta would never make it to work/uni. Wine flu can easily be prevented by avoiding any contact with wine.

Masks such as the one seen above can aid in prevention of the disease, as they prevent the wearer from drinking wine. Unfortunately they also prevent intake of other neccesary fluids, i.e water, and so are by no means a permanent solution to the problem. Take care kiddies, and drink responsibily this Winter.
