Pros and Cons of Being Sick

  • You feel like your throat and your ears drums are about to explode every minute of every day.
  • Eating becomes a necessary evil.
  • You have to chug a glass of Alka-Seltzer Cold Medicine every few hours.
  • Each sniff or swallow produces searing pains throughout your brain.
  • You walk around in a daze because you are simply not capable of any serious brain activity.
  • After getting off work, you feel completely justified laying on your bed for the rest of the evening, putting in movie after movie until you fall asleep at 8:35 PM.
  • In a medicine-induced stupor, you come up with amazing ideas for novels.  (I plan on publishing two books by the end of this year, as a result.)
  • You feel okay about putting off doing your homework or exercising because too much mental or physical exertion is detrimental to your already unstable health.
