Yes, I'm still sick. Yes, I realize this is not in any way interesting to you and I don't blame you. But in the interest of being a good blogger and not abandoning my loyal readership, I thought I'd share a little text exchange that occurred this morning. No guarantee if it's genuinely funny or just funny to someone hopped up on NyQuil. Weeeeee.
ME: (Coughing in the kitchen and sounding like I'm going to die. Nothing unusual given this week.)
UPSTAIRS NEIGHBOR FRIEND: You ok down there?
ME: OMG can you hear me?
UNF: Kinda...Are you ok? Do you need anything?
ME: (Thinks about what I must sound like and then, as one does in these types of situations, thinks about Moulin Rouge:)
Maybe a handkerchief...I coughed up blood on all of mine.
UNF: Oh my goodness!!! I have tissues, will that work? Do you need to go to the hospital?
Me: Dude. Consumption joke! Haha
UNF: Oh my god you had me all worried!!!!
Apparently no one appreciates a good consumptive joke these days. Honestly, when was the last time you even heard one? Or maybe I'm just not particularly funny when I'm sick.
No, that can't be it.
