I don't do sick very well. I am a whiner, but I also have a hard time leaving work alone. The flu my husband passed along to me had me knocked on my butt the last two days. And during these two days, there is something that I am so thankful for---DVD box sets of television shows. What did we do on our sick days before them?
There's nothing like rehashing an old season of The West Wing, Seinfeld, The Sopranos, Entourage. Whatever floats your boat. Let's face it, when you are too sick to work and the couch is calling, you may still have enough of your right mind available to not want to be at the mercy of the cable company or movie channels. I love Superbad as much as the next person with a sense of humor, but every once in a while, it's nice to watch a rerun of a TV show without commercial interruption.
It's the small things that mean the most. Lotion softened tissues and TV Series DVD Box Sets. Got to get some of those tissues!
