A long haul on the porcelain bus

Well, here's something new: I think I may have actually broken a rib from throwing up so much.

WHY DO I NEVER GET A FLU SHOT.

Dude, I just had that this weekend! Much sympathy. Didn't break a rib, but did pull muscles in my back and arms from the epic convulsive hoosamawatz. Much sympathy.

Also, three people in my office with flu shots got it too, so I think the CDC guessed wrong this year. Don't blame yourself.

I never get a flu shot either. Maybe your experience is meant as a warning to others.

Put on a leather jacket and go "Ayyyyyy"?

possibly, but he'd probably take his hot-rod Ford and a two-dollar bill, go to a spot right over the hill where there's soda pop and the dancin's free, and not worry so much about flu shots.

Oh, yeah, I should've noticed Leonard's avatar. I thought you were asking What Would Henry Winkler Do.

Blecchh. My sympathies.
You don't get a flu shot for the same reason I don't; because you are not A) a little child, B) an oldster and C) do not work in hospital.
Take care.

It might be a torn intercostal muscle (those are the muscles between the ribs), or a break in the joint between rib and breastbone.

Either way, it'll heal on its own. Slowly. I speak from experience.

Good luck.
