sneeze tally so far today: 31 and counting.
i like how people say “oh yeah, something is going around” when they’re talking about a community bug or virus.
it makes me think of a little germ posse paying super-rando unannounced housecalls to everyones’ bodies, crashing in their immune systems’ living rooms, and leaving everything in shambles with nary a “peace out.”
like that one wild friend who can’t get past college who comes into town so last-minute that you don’t even expect him or her until he or she is on your doorstep grinning and hungry for a weekend full of gambling-substances-infamy cocktails: shaken, not stirred.
i do not actually have a friend who fits that description but i guess i’m willing to accept the tradeoff of a cold instead. seems fair.
the end result is still lying on the floor unaware of your surroundings and cursing the day you ever trusted that lifehungry fool.
