Childhood wisdom

I read this book multiple times as a child, with the story leading you to realize that even though sick days off from school can seem great (TV, snacks, attention from a parent) it’s not actually fun to feel like you’re on death’s doorstep. 

And I am quickly learning that as a Real Life Adult, sick days are even harder to come by, even if you work in the service industry. The title of this book has been running through my mind lately, as I’ve been struck with the plague from  coworkers. It’s no fun to be sick.
