Drill

Poor Husby is on his way home from Wichita, KS where he was serving his monthly Drill weekend. Last month's Drill landed on the same weekend as his brother's wedding in Iowa, so he was also making up those two days, spending Thursday through Sunday at McConnell Air Force Base. 

The military gives all members an annual flu vaccine, and this year Husby was administered the nasal mist for the first time. Unfortunately, he was the 1 in 1000 who actually contracted the virus from the vaccine [the mist is a small dose of the live virus, while the shot (which he's been given in years past) is a dead version]. After working three days feeling like a sick dog, he's not driving the 6 hour trek home to get some rest and hopefully recover.
