1. Getting sick sucks.
2. Getting sick to the point where you can’t speak, swallow without wincing from the pain in your throat, or move without a bout of violent sneezing…really sucks.

4. When you are up to your neck in used tissues and cough drop wrappers, it really is best to take the day off from homework.
5. Cupcakes are good. And often necessary.
