I bid you all a fair adieu…that’s French for so long folks!

Sunday morning, I came home from recertifying my CPR, and found my husband, Wayne, laying on the couch with THE LOOK.
Ladies, you know what look I’m talking about.
It’s that “I’m sick” look.

I. Hate. That. Look.

It’s not that I’m saying don’t be sick.
I’m just saying, don’t look so pathetic.
You have a stuffy nose, not herpes, smile for goodness sake.

But I don’t say anything.
I let him wallow in self-pity all day Sunday.
I watch as he drags himself into the kitchen to make soup.

Probably nothing bugs me more than seeing people make soup when they’re sick.
It’s soup. Not the fucken elixir of life.
But again, I don’t say anything.

Monday he goes to work.
I point out that he’s sick.
And I know he’s sick because he’s still got THE LOOK.

This means more soup when he gets home.

Tuesday morning, he comes to me before leaving for work.
He’s showing me something on his Blackberry.
I’m like, “What?”
He’s like, “…grunt…”
I’m like, “What?”
He’s pointing at an email on his Blackberry, and “…grunt…”
I’m like, “What? What?” not in my nice tone
He’s like, “…GRUNT…” not in his nice grunting tone

Essentially he was showing me something completely insignificant, but he wanted me to see that he had lost his voice, instead of just whispering to me, “I’ve lost my voice.”

BUT he’s still dressed for work.
He’s going to fucken work.

I say, in my nice tone again because I’m really a nice person “You can’t go to work if you feel this badly. I’ll call the doc’s office and see if I can get you in.”
He grunts an “ok.”
Notice how it had never occurred to him to call the doctor’s office himself…?

Fast-forward to later in the day, because I’m pretty sure you don’t want to hear how I had to stiffle my foot from flying up his ass as he was shuffling out the door to his doctor’s appointment, Mr. Grunter returns with antibiotics and renewed hope.
He will live.
Imagine that.

However, now, we have graduated to the stage of the illness where he wants to talk about the symptoms he’s been enduring these past three days.

I am now privy to a play-by-play of his sinus pain, his sore throat, his runny nose complete with tissue count.
“I’m sure I went through an entire box of Kleenex,” he tells me proudly.

And still I have not inflicted any pain on him.
Still I am ignoring him remaining calm.

But then…then…he brings me a pack of pork chops and says, “Can you cook these up and make that sweet and sour sauce I like. We can have them for supper.”
What about the soup? Where’s the fucken soup now???

And then…then…he returns from the bathroom and describes his bowel movement to me.
Buddy, it’s the flu! You have the flu! People shit when they have the flu.

And then…THEN…he makes a snorting sound, ensuring that the phlegm rattle can be heard by everyone in the household, and says, “Oh. That’s new.”

Know what else is going to be new?
The pillow I’m going to be holding over your head later tonight because I can’t take it anymore!

So I must say farewell to you all.
Because I’m not sure I’ll have access to the Internet or my blog when I’m in jail for manslaughter.

    Women – where would we be without them (Strip clubs possibly)
    Your hubby sounds a bit like me, a jock, a burly man but when sickened with a wee sniffle turns into a slavering 4 year old!!! incapable of doing anything else other than flick through the channels on the tele.
    Good luck
    PS. keep up with the soup it is the magic liquid of the weak.

    I saw the words, “The look”, and I knew before I got to the next sentence…and I was already cringing.

    God(dess). Help. Us. LOL.

    Do you get what I get when I am sick? I coddle them (kinda), make food (sorta), wait on them hand and foot (well, I do that anyway), but what happens when I get sick? I hear this:

    Go to bed.

    Then I get up to a house that is completely…and utterly…trashed.

    I'll kill your husband for you.

    I figured he was in the bathroom trying to get the pork chops from out of his butt after you finally cracked and shoved them up there!

    Men are such pussys when they are sick. It's just pitiful.

    If there's one woman on the jury for your manslaughter trial, you'll never get convicted. That's a fact.

    As with anyone who lives in close quarters, my husband and I often come down with the same illness. As luck would have it, I usually get it first. So, I do what sane people do – rest when I can, see the doctor, try to keep the whining in check. Then, inevitably, three days later he will get the same thing I had. Only, his case is MUCH worse. I mean, do I not realize how bad he feels? *moan* Seriously! *grunt* Has he ever felt this bad before? This is going to be the death of him! *deep sigh*

    Um, yeah, I know. I had it three days ago.

    Sick men – there is nothing worse!

    It isn't manslaughter when you kill him by smothering him with a pillow. Are you already working on your plea bargain and you figure you'll get them down to manslaughter? You're always thinking ahead.

    What is it with men and being sick? Do they truly think they are so invincible that a simple virus or sinus infection ruins their world?
    Added to this is that if I even say I have gas. My husband is sick too.
    I love men. But this is one thing about them that makes me want to runa way…far far away. (Be on the lookout for me. Here I come.)

    It's a known fact in the man world that men are/think they are, sicker than any woman ever thought of being. Whether it's with a cold or a hemmorhoid attack.
    They are such babies. I honestly think when they get a cold they act worse than when they have heart surgery.
    You have my sympathy.

    When my man is sick he begs for food. He won't eat soup, he wants home made mac and cheese and lots of it. Real mashed potatoes, and pork and beans. Followed by saltines and milk, and ice cream with choc sauce. I hate being home when he's sick, I spend the entire day waiting on him and cooking. Same applies to hangover.

    Hee hee – I know how that is. My ex-husband used to get sick every single time I went out with friends. Every single time. I would come home from girls night out and he would be lying on the sofa all sniffly and sick, but would have miraculously recovered by the morning. :)

  49. Sparkling
    April 6, 2011 | 4:17 pm

    I'm certain it's genetic. I never tell people when I'm actually sick because admitting it out loud would mean I really am. 15 years of teaching: 2 sick days. I've come with no voice, I've coming sure I wouldn't breathe for the entire day, but I somehow always make it.

    I can't believe he brought you a pack of pork chops to remind you what you could make for supper. Are you serious? Why do I picture him in pajamas, with an open robe with belt dragging on the ground, kleenex in one hand, pork chops in the other? Was that the scene?

    First off, you gave me a heart attack cuz I thought your title meant you were ending your blog and I just don't know what I would do without the awesome brilliance that is you. So thank Goddess that wasn't the case.

    Secondly, men are such freaking babies when they are sick. When Mom is sick she's expected to suck it up and continue her motherly duties, but a man gets sick and the whole world is supposed to stop spinning. Whatever.

    Finally, you crack me up! Loved this post. And again, so glad you're not quitting blogging!

    My husband is sick too- with the SAME thing I had last week, you know the one where he told me I was being dramatic and didn't I just get to sleep all day since I stay home with our 2 year old. So today when he fell “deathly ill” I had to take our toddler to the park because I was 2 minutes away from us making our debut on Snapped- you know that show on Oxygen about wives who kill their husbands.

    I, um, know, well I shouldn't say this, but, um….I won the husband lottery.

    Sorry, but after this post and reading the comments evidently I am not married to the average man because when my hubs gets sick he goes to bed and stays there. Doesn't ask for anything, doesn't moan or groan, nothing. I have to beg him to let me do anything for him. Swear!

    When he had a kidney stone [ouuuuch!] earlier this year he stayed in bed for a week, nary a peep until it showed up and he felt better.

    So, gotta run. I have some laurels I need to go rest on. Oh and some lucky stars I need to count.

  62. 00dozo
    April 6, 2011 | 6:21 pm

    Okay, I'll admit it. I groan if I've got a cold or somethingorother. But I will make soup! Homemade soup. Jewish penicillin! Why? Because, (a) I can; (b) I'm not dead yet; and, (c) as hard as they may try and want you to bless their little hearts, guys really can't (or won't) make the greatest effort to nurse you back to health, so you eventually have to look after yourself.

    Feck it, let him die.

    OMG! I hate husband-sickness! I like the fact that he likes soup when he's sick because he expects me to “cook” and it is right up my alley. Of course, being the food snob that he is, he makes me do it over the stove and not microwave. And by “makes me” I mean that if I don't then I get the “grunt” nose until I want to put the pillow over his face to put us both out of our misery. *sigh* I really feel for you.

    Sandra! I can't believe what I'm reading here! When Alex is sick, I wait on him hand and foot. He doesn't even need to reach for the remote because I hand it to him. I give him sponge baths, fluff his pillows, and he gets meals on a tray. The ice water jug is always filled and there is always a fresh flower on his meal tray. My daughter's husband always wants to come to my house when he's sick because my daughter is just like you!!!

  76. LOLA
    April 6, 2011 | 10:29 pm

    What's his butt – the guy I was married to – would sit around blowing his nose and stuffing the crusty tissues down into the couch because he was too fucking lazy to throw them out. I would ask, Do you want supper? PAUSE. Yes, I'll try to eat. Then he'd come to the table and act like he was going to cough up a lung and the kids and I would be on the verge of barfing from the sound of the cough and finally he'd say, I guess I can't eat. And he'd crawl away to stuff more tissues into the couch for me to pick up later. Why are we divorced? I wonder.

    Bestest bit = He will live.
    Imagine that.

    My husband's not a big whiner, really. But he shuts COMPLETELY down when he experiences the EXACT SAME illness I just wrestled with while still caring for my four fucking hangers-on. At least he's smart enough to hide quietly in the bedroom. And no damn soup.

    I know this sounds horrid, but I can't stand my Husband when he is sick. It's like the end of the world. And when I'm sick I still have to do all the shit I usually do.

    What? Wait! You expect him to call the doctor? How ridiculous! That is definitely a woman’s job. Right up there with cooking, cleaning and giving head. The man is sick, not only sick, but heroically sacrificing his health to go to work so that the family can continue to live in the lifestyle they have become accustom. And he went through a whole box of Kleenex? And still took on the stress of his job…JUST BECASE HE LOVES YOU! The man is a saint and I offer him a hand salute.

    oh my gosh, this totally made my night!
    i'm only 16 years old so i've never had a husband that's had “the look” but i've seen my twin brother, and younger brother with that look. and i'm with you. i just wanna slap em! When us girls are sick do you see us mopeing around, laying all over the couch. Uh no. we still do our laundry cook our meals, (and take care of the kids if you have any) we sure don't get a break. lol
    but anyway i hope you survive, and don't go to jail for manslaughter ;)

    OMG are you married to my husband?!?!?! And if so where are you hiding because I am sure it would be nice to share a bed with you then him at this point.

    I not only get play by play of colds but of things that no person on this earth, nay, in this universe, should ever EVER have to hear about. Like the huge ass boil on the inside of his ass cheek. Fun times for sure. That was two years ago and I still freaking hear about it as does everyone else who wasn't privy to the information the first time round.

    He is such a big cranky baby when sick/hurt. But when I get sick and have an ear that feels like a hornet got trapped in it by three cotton balls do I get sympathy? No of course not because I am the mom.

    Grrrr….make room in that jail cell for me, I may need it soon also.

    I am so sorry that the man cold has entered your house. Best of luck to you! I like to run away and hide when the man cold invades my house.

    In my marriage, it's me who is the baby. I have one of those husbands that is too stubborn to ever see a doctor, take a pill, or whine because “he's a man.” What is worse!?

    Hahaha… can't really blame you there. If it were my husband, I'd be bidding you all adieu for a loooong time, cos I'd definitely be in jail land already.

    Speaking of adieu, I really hope you come back soon, cos I just awarded you the Versatile Blogger Award!!! :) You can read more about it here: http://dosweatthesmallstuffblog.blogspot.com/2011/04/hurrayyy-its-my-first-ever-blog-award.html

    I have a feeling you're gonna end up hating me for it, but hey, it's my way of saying I love your blog!

    I dislike it when my spouse moans and whines about an impending illness.

    “I think I have a fever coming on.”
    “I hurt.”
    “I don't feel so good.”
    “I'm too sick to leave the bed.”

    Guess what? I rarely get sick and when I do, I suck it up and get it done.

    I'm all caught up now. So Wayne is sick….and the dummy died….but the dummy is not Wayne, because Wayne got better. And since Wayne lived and is in fact a real, live person, I think that you should definitely continue with your nursing classes. Wait…Wayne is still alive, right? And also, I think you should drop off your son every day wearing your fairy princess costume. And find as many excuses as you can to walk him to his classes. And when he finally begs you not to wear the fairy costume in front of all his friends ever ever again, you can negotiate a deal with him regarding the hat. It is all about the deal. I'm glad you are getting some good tv time. I'd like some of that soon. And I don't mean Max & Ruby. Sigh.

    If you end up with a female cop, lawyer, judge, and jury there is NO WAY you'll end up in the slammer! They would have done the same thing! Tell him to Man Up!

    Yeah right now I have a cold and the only person that I gave that look to was Cam but I'm not doing that anymore this cold. I know better in terms of my parents and of people around me. I mean yeah I'm not feeling my best, but I know how to keep quiet.
