Swine Flu

Saturday, November 21, 2009
It just occurred to me that being an escort leaves me vulnerable to the H1N1 virus -- also known as the Swine Flu.

When it comes to close physical contact, there's not much closer than sexual intercourse. Thankfully, I haven't experienced any sick clients or even the hint of a sick client. My ladies are as healthy and effervescent as ever, even if some are already suffering from stress from the upcoming holiday season.

So, would I turn a client down is she appeared sick? Probably. I know that might sound harsh, but I have to keep my own health a top priority, you know? Such is the life of any freelance worker. Sure, we can take all the sick days we like, but they will be unpaid ones.

Not much else to report. Catherine and I will be meeting one last time before she heads back to California, so I'm brainstorming activities for us to do. Perhaps we'll go to Vizcaya, a historical bayfront mansion that's open for tours. There's also Fairchild Tropical Gardens, which is just as lush and lovely as it sounds.

I've taken my parents to both attractions and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Speaking of which, my mother is already pestering me about the holiday season. Seeing how I won't be returning for Thanksgiving -- one couldn't pay me to fly on that day -- she's extra adamant about me being home in December.

I keep telling her I'll be home, even if it's a brief visit. As I said before, any time away from work means a loss of income. And if I'm going to visit Montreal like I want to, I need to take as many bookings as I can get. Fortunately, the approach of winter in Miami means that there will be plenty of snowbirds arriving soon.

That, my friends, bodes very well for me indeed.
