    Moral of the story: dogs are better than children and will not get you sick.

      Recently the dog told us he really prefers the water out of the cooler over the tap, so really, I don’t know which is more expensive by the time he’s done.

    Last time my daughter had the flu she managed to wipe out 4 separate households. Germy little bastards 😉

    Your husband didn’t get sick??? Bastard. Also, you should train your dog to dote on you when sick.

    I interacted with germs, I mean children, against my will last week and seem to have cheated illness! Yea for hand sanitizer.

      I really don’t know how he avoided it – I was a DISASTER. The dog has made it clear I dote on him, never the reverse. Unless he wants something, and then he’s quite attentive.

    This was hilarious. I was seriously thinking about what my own red and white blood cells were doing in my body. Wondering what song THEY like to dance to. 🙂 And, the fact that you googled cough drop choking death makes me love you.

    Glad you are feeling better!

      Thank you! I actually did fall asleep and then wake up at least three times with tiny little cough drops still stuck to the roof of my mouth, so I was pretty scared I would die the next time!

    This was brilliant! I laughed and laughed. Dogs are much better about not getting you sick. This is why I keep mine around.

    I loved the funny (well, you can laugh about it now anyway) timeline. One thing that stood out for me – and my sister-in-law is famous for doing this – the oh-by-the-way-my-kids-were-a-little-bit-ill-yesterday ambush. So we drive two and a half hours to see them – no hotel needed of course because we’re all one big murderously happy family and then stay a couple of nights in the middle of a viral war zone. Having your in-laws three year old jump in your lap with colorful nasal discharge running down their face is so much fun. And the hand crafted mask I made in the bathroom of Clorox wipes burns my skin. Of course all of my kids get sick – and my wife too which I guess is sort of a sweet revenge in itself. Oh, the joy of kids and germs and in-laws!

    Having flu is not really that normal and you have to make sure that you have to do everything just to prevent and cure it…
