Great Ideas for July 4 - Throw A Swine Flu Party
So I've been out with a fever and subsequent recovery the last week and a half so please don't blame me for forsaking my blogging duties. My brain has simply stopped processing for obvious reasons. Today, I found an awesome article on new and exciting way to spice up your July 4 holiday parties.
From the BBC, people are apparently throwing Swine Flu Parties where hosts invite guests with the swine flu in hopes of creating a vaccinating type exposure for all the guests.
"Throwing "swine flu parties" in an attempt to get immunity against the virus while it is a fairly mild form is not a good idea, doctors say. Reports have emerged of people intentionally mixing with friends who have flu.Their reasoning is that it is best to be infected before the winter when the virus could become more deadly."
All types of great ideas can be done for this fantastic party. I have already done some of the leg work and come up with some fantastic options for you and your guests.
Swine Flu Independence Day Party Ideas:
1. Serve sangria and mixed drinks in large communal scorpion bowl, where everyone gets a taste of everyone else.
2. Encourage double dipping. Dip the chip, take a bite and dip it again and again and again.
3. Reinstate childhood classics like Spin The Bottle, Seven Minutes In Heaven or just plain old raunchy saliva exchanges.
4. Close all the windows and set the heat to a germ breeding 80 degrees warmth.
5. Encourage less handwashing, especially when handling food.
6. Forsake serving utensils and encourage people to share items by passing them on their own forks and spoons.
