    I have some sinus infection or whatever tons of mucus and now the day or so after Christmas up to today I have lost my voice it sucks.

    However, finding Classics Jetfire at a Target yesterday cheered me up a bit.

    Has anyone else been blessed with some sickness this holiday season?

    I also have a cold and a stuffy nose. It sucks that I have to be at work now. At least I have a three day weekend.

    On x-mas day I got a migraine, one of the good ones where you get nauseated and everything.

    I didn't think much of it as I am prone to migraines, but 4 other people at work told me the same thing happened to them, so I guess it was something going around.

    I think I have an ulcer. For the past couple of days I've had a regular pain in my stomach, and a constant feeling of either having to poop or throw up.

    I'm just developing a sore throat and having a bit of trouble talking.

    Must have been all that head I gave.

    Kinds sounds like how I felt when i had a kidney stone. Except the pain was more to one side.

    I've been sick for a few days now, and on christmas day I was riding some water slides at a resort, when I smacked back-first into a protruding part of the slide. Since then, i'm barely able to walk without major pain.

    I've tried what I can to steer clear of all of the sick members of the family over the past few weeks and, miraculously, I haven't gotten sick yet. I'm sure that'll change, though.

    I've gotten sick over the holidays...but that was due to eating undercooked chicken. That was a miserable day, as you could probably guess.

    Thankfully, it wasnt THAT bad as food poisoning goes, i've had worse bouts with it in the past.

    Well, last week, my brothers were sick, throwing up. I only got a really bad migrane, and had to leave school. Other than that, Ive been fine.

    My wife's got a bad cold right now. I'm trying to avoid her enough so I don't catch it, but I probably will anyway.

    Not me, but we had to take my mom to thehospital on Saturday night, because she kept complaining about some abdominal pain. Turns out, she had a colon inflammation, I think its called Diverticulitis. Well, she spent X-mas there until Tuesday morning (which is when we opened our presents, because we didn't want to open them without her). We visited her every day, but it still sucked not having her around for Christmas.

    Luckily, she's back home and is much, much better. But still, this Christmas was supposed to be the best one, but it turns out, its been the worst one due to this and another event.

    I'm fit as a fiddle. But I'll trade you my good health for your Classics Jetfire.

    No sir. And I ain't gettin' sick. Two years ago I got ridiculously sick with some kinda alien flu that had me practically bedridden for a week. That made me super paranoid last year to the point where it was like the germophobe episode of Seinfeld.

    For Dec./Jan. I didn't touch elevator buttons, doorknobs, stair/escalator handrails..anything that some diseased individual may have touched before they washed their friggin' hands. I washed MY hands more than usual. Some kid coughing/sneezing within ten feet of me, I'm gone...including family. That schlub behind you in line that's coughing all over the place...nope; I'm getting in a different fucking line.

    Didn't get sick last year, and by God, I'm taking all the same steps this year. Yeah, it was that bad two years ago. Fuck all that.
