He vs She: Sick days

Day One He: Takes to the bed at the first sign of illness and sleeps for 24 hours. She: Drags herself to the nearest sitting spot. Stares blankly into the distance. Mumbles that this is bs and she doesn’t have time for it. Gets up and drags herself to the next spot that may or […]
