getting sick sucks

Cough, cough, wheeze

First day back at work after being out sick all last week. When I saw the co-worker I think I caught this from — or rather, when I heard her coughing and stopped by to say hi — I said, "So, you're at least three weeks ahead of me, which means I can look forward to this thing lingering a while, right?"

"Oh, yeah," she said. "Get to know it, make it feel at home, maybe set up a college fund for it... it's going to stay with you."
