Has anyone ever noticed how much it sucks to be sick?
I have avoided this Germy character so far this season, but it's all around me. Hovering, attempting to seduce my body into letting it in. I see friends and co-workers coughing and sniffling and look at them with sympathy.. and suspicion. Don't come too near me. No need to infect me, really. I start to break into cold chills at the thought of using the phone at work, typing on a keyboard, touching doorknobs. So I imagine the germs as one fine germ named Germy, a sultry yet lazy germ who understands that it's just not my type.
It's not you, it's me.
