‘Man-Flu’ doesn’t get the respect it deserves. Women laugh about it and tease you that ‘you’ve only got a little cold, get over it bucko!’. Gobs of websites treat it as simply a joke.
It’s time to lay down like a man and defend it. I’ve had it for the past day. It sucks. On the surface it doesn’t sound all that bad – a sore throat, cough, achy body. Reality, is far more sinister. I don’t have the energy of a Mexican jumping bean. Even just pressing keys on my laptop takes perseverance.
I think I’ll go lay down now. And hope I live to see my wife one more time before I die.
