*sniff, cough*

1. No one wants to come near you.
2. You can legally take sedatives.
3. You realize guests on daytime talk shows have worse lives than you.
4. You get away with being rude, obnoxious and surly.
5. You can smell like a baboon's butt and nobody complains.
6. You can mope around the house unwashed and in your housecoat all day.
7. No one has to know that every time you sneeze, you wet yourself.
8. Friends re-runs.
9. No make up.
10. You get to pass the virus on to those you really dislike.
11. Not having to brush your hair.
12. Blowing your nose and hearing your ears squeak.
13. Puffs plus with lotion.

I swear there's something about TTers and the flu - you poor kid - are we all passing it around? seems like every week a bunch more people have it - this is a great TT nonetheless - esp. the ears squeaking part - reading that made my eyes water! how freaky/fun is that?! happy TT and feel better!! :)

Yes, the flu can afford one some much needed private time. I thought that I was going to get a large amount of private time today but now I am not. I haven't had any private time for a while. Maybe I should go find someone to cough on me. :-)

Friends re-runs....that one sounds really fun.
