Rules of Engagement: Marriage and the Cold Virus

If one spouse is sick:
-No one sleeps.
-There will not be enough Nyquil to go around.
-There is no such thing as germs. (You share everythingeverythingeverything anyway. Why bother avoiding germs anymore?)

If (when) both spouses are sick:
-No one sleeps.
-Nyquil is not an option because the baby needs a parent who is not hungover in the morning.
-All meals (mostly for the child's benefit) will be made in the microwave.

If both spouses and the baby are sick:
-No one sleeps.
-Mommy is no longer sick even though she's still sick.
-All meals (for the whole family) are yogurt or ice cream. Or Goldfish Crackers.

I'm very sorry you're all feeling miserable - but man does your humor still come shining through. Thanks for the chuckle.

Thanks, Jo. I'm not sick (yet). I'm just projecting what my future holds...

Erin - you're pretty much a projection genius then. I'm glad you know what's in store. It sure beats being surprised and disappointed. ;)
