State of the Blog: Boyfriend Problems, Sort Of

Sep 28, 2016

Boyfriend goes out of town.  Boyfriend comes home with a severe case of seasonal allergies.  12-hours later girlfriend gets a fever, sore throat, runny nose, and cough.  Girlfriend realizes that boyfriend’s “allergies” are the flu.

Boyfriend, of course, is mostly better 24-hours later.  Girlfriend is mainlining Theraflu from her sick bed.  Girlfriend considers taking out a hit on boyfriend if he ever utters the phrase “I never get sick” again.

There may be posts today.  We’ll see how I feel when I wake up.  If I wake up.  I took a lot of NyQuil.

    Ooooooo my boyfriend did this to me a couple of weeks ago too, they always think they can’t get sick! Hope you get to feeling better!

  3. Lynn says:

    I hope he’s taking care of you. He owes you.

  4. Arie says:

    Feel better! Yes my boyfriend does this every winter

  5. Shelley says:

    Just to play to devil’s advocate and to possibly save your boyfriend’s life, I think that it takes at least 24 hours after exposure for flu symptoms to show up and could take up to 7 days. So it’s probably possible that you caught it from someone else.

    Just trying to do my part to save a great relationship 😉

    Hopefully he doesn’t read these comments and still feels guilty and taking good care of you 🙂

The Range: Trouser Jeans
