So I posted earlier in the week that I got sick. It was bad for me since I have not been sick for almost a year... well nothing that lasted a week!
I know I got it from my husband, because he came home hacking and coughing from work one day last week. He was doing the whole:
"Uhhhhh..... I don't feel good..... uhhhhhh...."
I just told him to shut up, that he had the man flu. A few days later I got sick, and had to take care of myself. Hot tea, NyQuil, DayQuil, Sudafed, etc...
The last few nights he has been hacking and coughing like he is going to lose a lung (as he steps outside in the bitter cold to smoke a cigarette), so tonight I poured NyQuil in a cup for him.
"Here, drink this. You are going to sleep tonight without coughing so that I can sleep."
"But it tastes so bad!!!! I don't like this!!!"
"No one likes it! Stop being a pussy and take the damn medicine!"
"You gave me too much! It is supposed to be filled to the line and it is over the line!"
"It is not! JUST TAKE THE FUCKING MEDICINE!!!!"
"It tastes nasty, I don't like it.... I don't want any!!"
"No one likes it. I don't like it, the kids don't like it, but we all take it anyway without crying like a girl. Just take it!"
He drinks about half of it and then tries to hand it back to me.
"Uhhh... no. Finish it."
Why are men such babies when they get sick? They get a little sniffle and they are "gonna die".
