Marriage 201, Lecture 333: What are the odds of getting sick on a Saturday? Like one in a thousand?*

SH: [Whine, whine, whine]

Me: Poor baby.

SH: Whine, whine, whine] I have a cold. I feel miserable. This is so unfair to be sick on the weekend. By the time I feel better, it will be Monday and I'll have to work again.

Me: You don't come from a stiff upper lip family, do you?**

SH: [Whine, whine, whine]

* From Homer Simpson.

** For the record, SH has to pull it out of me when I have a headache, a not-infrequent occurrence although better since I started taking depakote. Of course, the depakote gives me nightmares every single night and I awake with sore jaws from grinding my teeth, but whatever. I don't whine.
