What Evil Lurks in the Lungs of Men?

November 20th, 2007 by Potato

Well, like every year since I started working at the hospital, I got my flu shot as soon as it was available. And like every year, I got some kind of mild flu/bad cold right at the beginning of flu season (one year, I got the flu before they started offering shots). After being sick for 4 days, I think I’m finally on the upswing.

It’s been fun though, Wayfare came back home on Sunday and won’t let me go near her. I know she has a craptacular immune system, but sometimes she acts repulsed in such a way as to suggest she thinks I’m sick on purpose, and cruelly trying to make her sick. She’s running around opening doors with her shirt, and steadfastly refusing to touch the orange juice container I was using. She put a kleenex around the TV remote so she wouldn’t have to touch the buttons. She gives me a dirty look any time I touch something…

I’m a pariah in my own home!

    I can’t help it – you have cooties and my immune system is non-existent! You would share my paranoia if you too had ever had a simple cold last 8 weeks or develop into pneumonia or endocarditis.

    It also doesn’t help your case any when you tell me you think you have mumps. :P

    My mom thinks I have mumps.

    No, I can’t blame you, but it doesn’t make me any less of a pariah.

    Cold FX works amazingly. I’ve used it a few times now, and despite the (I think) excessive price, I’d still use it again.
