Can I be saved?

A first year teacher, lots of exposure, frequent colds.  This one was bad--severe sore throat, painful cough, no voice at all.

I knew the answer, but looked him over for the hands-on touch.

Son (I didn’t really call him that), you’ve got a helluva virus.”

He grabbed a pen and pad, looked up anxiously,  “Could you spell that?”

Cute! I wonder if that "helluva-virus" is the new Swine flu variety. LOL!
