Sick fun

Spring is in the air!  It is time for nasty allergies and unpleasant flu.  You probably called in sick one time or the other.  But did you and your spouse both fall sick and took the day off at the same time?  If you didn’t, let me tell ya, this situation provides numerous unexplored romantic opportunities.  Just because you both are sick like dogs, clinging to bed with aching body, bouts of cough, pounding headache and high fever, it doesn’t mean you can’t make it romantic and fun.

Here are the top ten things to do to spice up your sick day when you and your spouse both are home sick:

10. Impersonate movie actors in your soar-throat aided husky voice
9. Play thermometer race.  Stick digital thermometers in your mouths and see who’s beeps first
8. Just in case there is ever such event, practice for Olympic Synchronized Coughing
7. Sit out in the backyard and chat over a hot cup of Theraflu
6. Forget staring contest.  Try “who can go longest without wiping nose” contest
5. You played drinking games, didn’t you?  Try this: watch daytime tabloid talk shows and take a cough syrup shot every time a word is bleeped out
4. If your noses are completely blocked, see how long you can kiss before you gasp for air.  Can you hit the magic 1 minute mark?
3. Hide a Tylenol capsule in your layers of clothing and let him/her search for it
2. One word.  69!  Give each other foot-massages
1. To declare your undying love for each other, exchange your nasal sprays

  • Some are good, a few hilarious and a couple downright gross… In the whole an entertaining read. You have set quite high standards via your previous posts and its great to find a new post.

  • finally a new post…welcome back!

  • Hey that was very Innovative And Hilarious.. :)
    Keep up The Good work :)

  • I’m guessing you raan out of tylenol! That probably explains it.

  • Guess there is an upside to getting sick huh?
    Wish u and Mrs. a fast recovery.

  • #6 takes the cake (or the snot :P)

  • How about sharing a steamer?

  • Lol! Your posts never cease to amuse me. Outright hilarious! 😀

  • I tried this. Honestly. But we could go no further than No.9. We have only a rectal thermometer at home, you see :(

  • You can also try this…how about a candle light dinner at the doctors place? Just you,your wife and dinner by the doctor with the occasional supple juicy red pills!:D

  • ROFL! As.I.type.we’re.both.sick.at.home. And I hate you for this!
    So what, you send the kids on a scavenger hunt to get the props so you
    two could indulge in some er…sick fun? 😛

  • That was one hilarious and well researched list of things-to-do-when-sick-at-home!! 😀 i will be trying out a couple when i am down with a cold in a couple of days. hehe 😀 my husband has started his share of sniffing alreday!!

    A couple more:
    # Who can hold out longest on a single hanky? (all day competition)
    # Holding a mouthfull of water longest.

  • Mitesh:

    Sorry to disappoint you. I will try to be more gross next time 😛

    Lakshmi:
    finally a new post…welcome back!
    If people say “welcome back” when you make a post, it means you need to post more often 😀 Point taken 😉

    Reeti Dwivedi:
    Thank you :)

    Tylenol is for babies. Vicodin is for men 😉

    La Vida Loca:
    Guess there is an upside to getting sick huh?
    There are a lot of upsides. Like we don’t have to cook because we have no appetite and so on 😀
    Wish u and Mrs. a fast recovery.
    Just wish her a fast recovery. Then I can make her do stuff for me. he he.

    D:
    6 takes the cake (or the snot :P)
    Lol. Ya, I can’t play that game. I get wiped out each time.

  • Ava:
    How about sharing a steamer?
    Just sharing a steamer doesn’t seem much fun. You know, we could use #6 to determine who gets to use the steamer first 😀

    Dhanya:
    Your posts never cease to amuse me
    Thank you! Always nice to hear.

    Rofl Indian:
    We have only a rectal thermometer at home, you see
    That’s even better. If you get an oral thermometer too, you can play the game all by yourself.

    Nutty-Martian:
    how about a candle light dinner at the doctors place?
    :) The doctor would be as intrusive as the waiter, coming by every two minutes as asking, “how are we doing here.”

    gauri:
    As.I.type.we’re.both.sick.at.home. And I hate you for this!
    Hate me? Honest! I didn’t cause your sickness 😛

    you send the kids on a scavenger hunt to get the props so you
    Kid going to preschool is good for our sanity, his and ours.

    In any case, which part of “sick fun” did it say “leave comments on blogs?” Now, GO HAVE SOME FUN!

    i will be trying out a couple when i am down with a cold in a couple of days.
    You seem to be getting the same sickness I normally get on a warm sunny day 😉

    Who can hold out longest on a single hanky? (all day competition)
    ROFL! And it will be illegal to wipe the nose off the pillow case, shirt sleeve or curtains!

    Holding a mouthfull of water longest.
    Ah, you mean when the nose is blocked. Nice one :) We can come up with more things on this “holding” concept but I will leave it to your imagination.

  • LOL at 69! Now, why don’t you try who can drip fast from the nose and fill the cup with mucus faster!

  • eww!!! sharing nose sprays !!! or even kissing?? gross
    but well really cool post as usual!! :)

  • Gawds, this is FUNNY! even though i frequently have a cold, I absolutely must work through it. besides i work from home and hence no ‘calling in sick’ AND my ‘partner’ doesn’t live with me, yet.

    Dang! I am missing out on all the fun things! Well, you guys get well soon (am too jealous) 😛

  • Damn!!
    It sounds as if the most romantic time in married life is when both husband and wife are sick(no pun intended).

  • Am so glad that you are back… And with a bang!

  • you’ve been away for a long time. a common complaints i guess. i thought you got laid off or sthg and were busy looking for a job 😀

    nice post. i am unmarried still. no, these posts havent tempted me enough to risk my bachelor life and get sick. 😀

  • Dinesh:
    why don’t you try who can drip
    Haha. Here, I hand over my crown for grossness

    aditi c:
    gross
    I guess I should be glad that I deleted some of the items thinking “nah, this is too gross” 😀
    cool post
    Thank you :)

    lost_poet:
    besides i work from home and hence no ‘calling in sick’
    LOL that’s right! You know, I feel there is always more scrutiny on the ‘working from home’ people.

    And the worst part of working form home? You can’t pass on your sickness to anybody 😉
    I am missing out on all the fun things!
    you sure are! Get married soon and get sick 😛

    Abhishek Upadhyay:
    It sounds as if the most romantic time in married life is when both husband and wife are sick (no pun intended)
    ROFL! Good one!

    Romance is like the itch in your ear. You think of it when you get nothing else to do.

    Gaurav:
    Am so glad that you are back… And with a bang!
    Bang? That was a loud sneeze 😀

    creek:
    you’ve been away for a long time. a common complaints i guess
    Not a common complaint. Most people are glad if I am away 😛
    i thought you got laid off or sthg
    No not yet :)
    i am unmarried still.
    Congratulations.
    havent tempted me enough to risk my bachelor life
    You are a smart person. You identified marriage as a risk 😀

  • Lol!
    Flu imaginations.
    I wonder how you think of such things..its funny anyway. 😛

  • Talk about being grossly sick!! Ahem! I take it you’ve tried every one of these roman-gross-ic games! 😛 I’d love to try 3!

  • sugar cube:

    Flu imaginations
    That’s a good way of saying it. Some people call it delirious.

    I wonder how you think of such things
    If you are in bed too sick to use a laptop, this is what you think 😀

    sthitapragnya:
    I take it you’ve tried every one of these
    In my head, yes.

    I’d love to try 3!
    Sure…will be a bit of a problem since you are not married. You got any roommates?

  • reg #6, how does it work exactly? Is the loser the first person to wipe his nose or the first person who drips? 😀

  • Quite foreign-sick methods.
    Thinking desi, how about a gurgling antakshari (ofcourse all songs will start with ‘g’)?

    Cheers!
    ~uh~

  • lol… good one :) One more: Try saying all the nasal-sounding consonants and see who gets that magic nasal word right. ng, nj, n, m, etc…

  • I wonder if “soar-throat” was an intentional typo

  • chutney:
    Is the loser the first person to wipe his nose or the first person who drips?
    The rules are a little more complicated than that. Not the first person who drips, but who “touches the floor”. See some times you may drip but may not touch… fill in the rest.

    udtahaathi:
    Thinking desi, how about a gurgling antakshari (ofcourse all songs will start with ‘g’)?
    Haha. That’s tough! g is the first letter to run out in antakshari

    Sriram:
    Try saying all the nasal-sounding consonants and see who gets that magic nasal word right
    Haha! This is a good one too!

    RukmaniRam:
    I wonder if “soar-throat” was an intentional typo
    No it’s just a typo :) I should fix it. Thanks for pointing out.
