Töölöntorin reunalta

Kävin ottamassa influenssarokotteen paikallisessa terveyskeskuksessa. Joku pelotteli etukäteen, että ei ole viisasta mennä, siitäkin ehkä voi saada unitaudin tai jotain muuta kamalaa. Menin silti. Olen muutamaan kertaan ollut niin pahassa kulkutauti-influenssassa, että en halua kokea sellaisia koskaan enää. Lapsena minuun tarttui se kuuluisa "aasialainen", enkä sitä kokemusta unohda ikinä.

"Ice swimming is swimming in a body of water with a frozen crust of ice, which requires cutting a hole in the ice. This may also be simulated by a pool of water at 0 °C, the temperature at which water freezes.
