Fuck Swine Flu (Or, Overheard)

Overheard on the street yesterday at a crosswalk...

FRIGHTENED WOMAN: God, I'm so scared of cars. Really, I am. Like one is just going to run me over while I'm crossing the street. You know what I'm even more afraid of? Anorexia. I'm afraid I might catch it.

I had to turn around for that last bit. I thought maybe I'd misheard something, but the woman she was speaking to had this horrified O-my-God-I-can't-believe-I'm-friends-with-her look on her face. Hopefully, the horrified woman had the gumption to tell her frightened friend that outside of ballet schools and gymnastic camps, Anorexia doesn't work that way.
