Germ factory

Matthew has made me sick.  His cough and stuff nose have worked their way over to me.  I didn’t used to get sick before these little germ factories were born.  I used to have to “pretend” to be sick, just so I could stay home from school.  I don’t ever remember actually being sick or having a real fever.  I remember the trick.  act sick the night before and then Dad would let us stay home in the morning.  If we just woke up sick, he would make us go to school.

The boys, however, have made me truly understand.  Headache, cough, snot.  I’m a mess.  I just woke up from a nap and feel a little better, but am worried that I won’t be able to fall asleep tonight.  Yuck.

I was never sick growing up either (except for the pneumonia in 8th grade). Dad let me get away with that too, but i could fake it in the morning (i guess he got lazy). Since I was never sick, he gave me 2-3 days a year to play hooky.

Whatya think?
