  1. So true. We’ve been passing the same ones backwards and forwards now for 40 years. Heaven help anyone else who comes along, those germs are so potent by now they’d probably start a pandemic.

  2. This is very cute and a little gross, so basically right on topic. I hope you both feel better soon!

  3. This reminds me of when me and my ex first got together. We alternated getting each other sick every week because we were in that new relationship haze and neither one of us could bring ourselves to say, “You know, maybe we should just not see each other this week so we can get better.”

    • too real!! we got together after camp and had the dreaded a-camp plague (fortunately for us, we were long distance at the time).
