it's a warning from the Viruses!! your sister got sick. now you are next. no matter what amount of precautions i take, my sister somehow manages to pass on her virus to me. i can survive being imprisoned in a cell teeming with sick people and i wouldn’t catch anything. but i rest assured that if my sick sister is within the distance of sight/hearing, i shall be the next victim of whatever sickness it is that she is down with. i think that all this has a bit of scientific twist to it. i guess that with our matching DNA and Gene Pool, my sister's body is the perfect host for any virus to mutate to the level that they are able to bypass all the defences that my immune system has built up. she certainly plays the role of the virus host admirably.
some of you may find it amusing, but it truly is one of the lesser wanted quirks/jokes that life has in store for me.
anyways, so after having spent most of the night tossing and turning, with my body temperature levels going haywire. i waged an endless battle against runny nose. my sister did come in once into my room only to give me some pill that i had forced her to take at knife point just 2 days back when she was sick, and tell me to hang in since the worst was yet to come!! and then she gave one of her trademark sweet & innocent smiles and reminded me how she had threatened to pass on the flu to me if i kept on pestering her...
oooo, how i hated her at that moment in time with all the intensity that my flu ridden soul could muster up....well, to carry further in less hateful terms, i have been consuming chicken soup all day long. now that is one thing about the flu that i don't mind. chicken soup, mmmm, any day!! so it was imperative that my jobless/aimless/sick with flu mind wander off in the direction of researching chicken soup on the web. well actually i just wanted to put up a yummy picture of a steaming bowl of chicken soup for the benefit of all my readers without having to get my camera and take a snap of the bowl in front of me.
well for all my troubles i just managed to come up with a million chicken soup for the soul/ husband/ horse lover/ crazy teenager/ chiropractic/ gardner/ whatever it is books that the publishing houses come up with nowadays (it would be interesting to compile a list of the entire chicken soup book series. maybe i could do that once i feel a bit better) ... and then my tired flu ridden body gave up!!
now i need to go sleep some more. but first, i need some more chicken soup.
