Everyone's favorite crooner/charmer Jens Lekman revealed on his blog that he has contracted the Swine Flu. He recounts the tale in perfectly well-written detail:
"I was crossing the Atlantic when things started getting really bad, the fever was hallucinogenic and shaking me like a leaf and I grabbed the sleeve of the Air France steward. "I'm not feeling well, I should see a doctor" I said and the reply came as a brilliant mix of death anxiety and french rudeness: "Uh, yes... Terminal D... go there maybe... when we land". After that the stewards and stewardesses took long detours. A ring of empty seats formed around me. Peoples eyes were kind but determined, they read "Poor you, I really wish you all the best but if you come near me or my kid I will have to stab you with this plastic fork". I got up and went to the bathroom where I fainted.Now I'm in quarantine for ten days. I can see the summer through my window and it's just perfect. Summer is always best through a window."
Feel better, Jens! ...And maybe write a song about it?
