I'm So Sick...

I woke up last Thursday or Friday with a strange feeling in my left nostril. And before you even ask, yes. I can pinpoint exactly where germs are doing work (son) in my body. I'm that self aware.

So I said to my mom, "I think I'm getting sick." I explained to her that I had a weird stinging in my left nostril which, for me, either means cold or sinus infection. And then I left to go somewhere. When I got back, she had laid a magazine open on my bed to an article called "12 Ways to Stop a Cold Before It Begins". Now, normally I would appreciate this gesture as I love reading and learning interesting facts about things that I can then recite back to other people at opportune times. However, in this case, it was too late.

The change had already happened...

You see, normally, I am the pinnacle of manhood. I'm so tough, I make Dennis Quaid look like Christian Siriano. But when I'm sick, I become something else. I become a whiny, whimpy, grumpy, baby. The simplest task becomes an insurmountable obstacle.

FACT: Sick Josh is no fun...

But I'm coming out on the other side of it now. Partially because of some Allegra that my aunt gave me. But, and this is just my expert opinion here, mainly because of my incredible mental toughness that allowed me to will myself back into wellness.

Take that germs...

sorry, but your "I am the pinnacle of manhood" comment made me laugh really loud. You are a funny guy.

Um, you are a baby when you're sick. You missed the best crab leg dinner ever, in the history of the world, because you were not mentally tough enough...
