I very rarely get sick. I don't know if it's because my hands are perpetually submerged in hot soapy dish water, of if I really have an amazing immune system, but for whatever reason, it's rare.
When Elli started coming down with a nasty cold/flu bug, I wasn't worried. I downed some vitamin C and chopped up some jalapeños, my sure-fire immunity booster combination. I began to feel a scratchy tickle in my throat, so I repeated the above procedure. This almost always works, even after the symptoms have started to manifest themselves.
Not this time.
I am sick.
I just hope Andy doesn't get it. He gets everything that is going around, it seems. A little role reversal right about now would be great.
