Man Stroke Woman - Man Cold

Good news! My daughter has caught my husband's man cold. I KNOW, PEOPLE, I KNOW! How did I find out? A sampling of her comments:

"Mom, (cough cough) I taste blood! My throat is bleeding (cough) because I'm coughing sohard!"

"Mom, (cough) it hurts my fingers to touch stuff."

"Mom, (sprawled across the floor) Check my forehead. (cough) Bring me some medicine. (sigh) Can you get me some orange juice? I want the big chair in the car, so make the boys sit in the back. My neck hurts. My skin hurts. Can the boys clean my room?"

So yeah. Wish me well.

On a side note, my dear husband was obliged to awaken me in the predawn light, on his way out the door, to show me his cold sore. Because yes, it was THAT important for me to know that one~he has a cold sore, two~it's because he has a cold, and three~cold sores are caused by stress, and clearly he is stressed, on account of the physical manifestation on his lip.

But he can't help it. He's a man, and he has a cold.

Poor little bunny.

My husband is in bed right now, sleeping. Because he has a little cold.

Poor man, life must be so tough.

I just don't understand why I can't stay in bed for nine months, cause that's how long I get sick.

Apparently, it's not the same.

I want to know to first said that. So I can kill him.

You poor poor thing!

I hope that your poor wee one is able to recover, but I'm sure it's gonna be touch and go.

AND a cold sore.
Nothing says I love you like a herpes virus!

I've just consulted symptoms you describe with a Dr...he said for sure your daughter has a MAN COLD...oh poor thing, that's worse than an "airplane germs" cold. (Cause remember Lisa you passed yours on in flight.) cough cough.

So sorry about the cold sore too.

OH MY GOODNESS. my husband is such a baby when it comes to being sick. And most of the time I baby him... But when I am preggers I have no sympathy so he is out of luck lately. Sorry your daughter is sick. I hate sick babies, its so hard on mommies to see them down. Hope she feels better soon.

I think the last sick day I had for my self was 4 years ago... I had to go to the hospital because I was so sick I kept passing out.

Men are babies. I'm trying to get them to utilize this mantra...

Suck it up, buttercup.

So far... no deal.

I'm also laughing at the poor little bunny - Ha Ha Ha. You are a crack up!

poor Bunny :)

my kids have been sick all week... just colds - okay, and an ear infection... but that's just an offshoot of her cold right?

of course, the 13 year old wouldn't stay home even with his cold sore and feeling like crap... don't ask how it happened, but I may have produced a boy with the fortitude of a woman?

or maybe when he hits "manhood" actually this same kind of cold will require pampering and being called Bunny.
