Top 5 Sick Tips

It’s been declared Out Sick Week at my house, as MJ was down with some bronchial thing and Dad with fever and coughing. I escaped with just a horrible cough that sounds like I’m coughing up pieces of my lungs and so far J didn’t get it at all. So we developed some tips for illness, since everyone seems to be coming down sick this year.

1) Plenty of rest and fluids. Preferably non-alcoholic but a equal-parts mix of whiskey, honey, and lemon never hurt one’s throat or sanity.

2) If one person in the house comes down sick, move out. Immediately. Do not pass go. Do not take your shit with you, just leave.

3) Don’t let one sick person bring you down. If the sick person asks to be thrown in the fire, do it. It’s sterile, humane, and if you live next to a plowed field, ashes leave no evidence. This is your health we’re talking about. Be proactive!

4) Repeat step 1 as often as ness…nec… ness’ary. :)

5) Don’t chew the AirBorne tablets.

So is there some nastiness going around? Because I was just congratulating myself on making it through the winter without getting sick (excepting food poisoning. But you really can't help food poisoning).
