So, question of the day.

How is it that I can manage to NOT get mono when I was exposed to it on more than one occasion, but my body can't even manage to fight off the common cold?

It's all in the way the dice roll. But hey, I wouldn't complain. At least it's not the other way around...

Hehe, that would stink. Colds aren't all that bad either.

So wait a minute... wasn't it you who was just telling me the other night that you have a "full proof" plan for NOT getting sick?

How is it then that you say your body can't fight it off. That would imply that you currently have one. Hmmm...

Hey, if you were to have payed attention to the day I posted it, then you would have realized that I posted it on Monday when I was coming down with something. And I didn't claim to have a plan for NOT getting sick. I have one to not stay sick for more than a day. So there.

And Matt, that's all a matter of opinion. You're right, I'd rather have a cold than mono, but being sick period is no fun. Having a cold and feeling downright miserable is no picnic. At least not in my book. But, hey, that's just me.

Yeah. You're telling me. I'm a miserable sickie. You know how people are usually either "angry" or "happy" drunks? Well, i'm an angry sickie. I just get plain grumpy and mean. Avoid me at all costs.

Compund that for when I injure myself and I have to take vicodine or something that makes me super woozy but keeps me awake and I'm even worse. Cuz I'm awake and I know I'm in pain or sick yet I can't sleep and can't do anything to pass the time because I'm so out of it I couldn't use scissors if i tried.

Um..wondering where the scissors come in...

yeah, i don't recommend sharp scissor use while on narcotics...

Well, i meant to illustrate that the simplest of tasks become a real bear to work through. As such I get very irritated. Usually when I don't feel well I game(yes, it's a verb) in order to forget how miserable I feel. When I game on narcostics I get upset because I repeatedly fail whatever task is set before me due to dulled motor skills. It's rather stinkie.

Narcostics? Could you possibly mean Narcotics? Hmm..
I knew what you meant, but it was a really interesting example to use, thats all.
