When you're an adult and sick...

As you get older things change.

For instance, when you're a kid and you get sick, your general reaction is probably a bit like this...

But when you're older, have responsibilities, things that NEED doing, school that you're PAYING for, and/or a job, well, your response to being sick generally changes to something like this...

To sum up, being sick as an "adult"* offers no compensation... -.-

*It's in quotes because I don't think we ever really feel like adults. We're all just sorta winging it. =\


  1. Well, I still consider myself a 'kid,' but even so my mom makes me go to school when I have things like the flu... So I never got that luxury of staying home unless it was an absolute emergency.

  2. When I was a kid I was still angry that I was sick because I HATED missing school. When you miss a day of school, you end up having to do more work trying to catch up. D=
