You know, I almost put in my original posting, "and no, buckytom, I won't be roofing today" .... you are such a goof!
For those who didn't read the info link, (thank you ladycook!) if you had chickenpox as a kid (which I did, and it was a horrific case at age 2½, thanks to my kindergarten aged sister who "shared") the virus lays dormant in you. It stays in you and rears it's ugly head when your body has something major, like cancer, surgery, etc. I haven't had any major things that would cause my immune system to get weak, but who knows...I'm always on the go, and stress is a daily issue that I choose not to let me get down. The problem is, the virus is airborne & contagious, and I could give chickenpox to people, especially pregnant women and small kids.
For those who are 60 and above:
if you've had chickenpox, please consider getting the shingles vaccine. They generally don't give it out to younger people.
