Being sick could be the worst thing to happen to you. Runny noses, rising temperatures, aching bodies, etc – YUCK. It’s just the worst. The feeling that comes over you when sick, the feeling of just wanting to collapse into a heap and curl up on the floor is universal. So is the feeling that this will never pass. And there is absolutely nothing anyone can say or do to make you feel even a little better.
Except, a handful of things can. Like the hugs of a loved one. Like hot soup. Like a nice steam to clear passages. Like snuggling in bed with a good movie on. Like having someone do every little thing for you, just because you can’t. Like getting out of boring commitments.
On second thought, being sick could be the best thing to happen to you.
