The Cure for What Ails You

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha, Frank, Billy

Subject: Achoo!

Ann comes out of her bedroom, carrying a plastic bag for of tissues and dumps it in the garbage.


“How are you feeling?”

“Weak, sleepy and stir-crazy. At least I’m not really sneezing anymore.”

“That’s better than last week, when you looked half-dead and were sneezing more regularly than Mount Rushmore.”

“Does Mount Rushmore sneeze? That’d be a sight to see.”

“I think he means Old Faithful, at least I hope so.”

“Doh! That’s right, Old Faithful. Although I can see it now..Sniffling presidents on the side of a mountain being the spokespeople for Kleenex.”

“I’m surprised the advertisers haven’t done it already.”

Ann, who had returned to her room, now comes out with an armful of sheets and blankets.

“So you’re weak and tired and your first thought is ‘laundry!’?”

“I’m trying to clean my room of all the germs.”

“You’re probably immune to all the germs you already had though.”

“We’re not however, so dragging your disease-infested blankets through the kitchen will probably just get the rest of us sick.”

“If you haven’t caught it already, you probably won’t.”

“Or you’re just exposing us to the reinforcements and they’ll finally break through our immune systems.”

“Scott was sniffling when he left for work this morning actually.”

“Ooops. He can just have some of those silly Vivanno smoothies at Starbucks..keep him strong. Yeah..So I suppose that means none of you want to wash these for me?” Ann offers the blankets to Frank.

“Not a chance. I’ll warm you up some chicken soup, but that’s as helpful as I’m going to be.”

“Ugh. I’m sick of chicken soup. No thanks.”

“Hot Toddy?”

“That sounds like a billion times better.”

“I’m on it.” Billy says, headed for the liquor cabinet and the whiskey.

Sara the Diseased

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha, Frank, Billy and Scott.

Subject: Sara gets Sick

Sara moans, while laying on the couch. “I think I’m sick.”

Stay away from me, I don’t feel like getting sick this week.”

What’s the matter? Got a cold?”

A cough, my head feels all congested and I have a headache, and I’m nauseas.”

There is Tylenol cold in the bathroom, you should take some. Take some vitamin C and Echinacea too. It’ll help.”

Okay..” Sara mutters, pulling herself to her feet and heading to the bathroom. Can you pour me something bubbly then?”

Tabitha pours Sara a glass of ginger ale. “I hope she doesn’t get us sick, I have a test next week that I need to study for, and trying to study sick sucks.”

I have to work, and I need the money. And I’m too lazy to do any writing when I’m sick.”

Sara returns from the bathroom and heads towards the kitchen. “Woah, stay away from me! I put your glass by the couch.”

Yes yes, I’m diseased, no one wants anything to do with me.” Sara mopes around and plops down on the couch.

Me and Mark have big plans for Valentine’s Day, I can’t be hacking and sneezing for them. That’d suck.”

Here, take some Vitamin C with me.”

Frank walks in from his room and sees Tabitha and Ann swallowing pills. “Oooh, popping pills already? Need something to take that edge off before Valentine’s Day dates tonight?”

Just Vitamin C, Sara’s sick.”

Diseased! Quick, someone spray her with Lysol!”

I don’t think spraying me with Lysol is going to heal me.”

You never know. I’m headed out for an early dinner with a friend, you want me to pick you up some cough drops on the way back?” Frank asks, as Sara start coughing violently.

That’d be great. Thanks Frank. See if they have the strawberry vitamin c ones. Those are yummy.”

You got it.”

Tabitha runs over with a Lysol wipe and wipes down the coffee table in the living room. You can at least cover your mouth if you’re going to hack all over!”

Oh relax! I don’t think germs can live for long outside the body anyway, especially on a coffee table.”

Okay okay..I just don’t want to get sick.”

I’m sure you’ll be fine. I don’t think I’m contagious anyway. I’m actually glad I didn’t have any plans for tonight, I’m not feeling up to being romantic anyway.”

Yeah, hard to feel sexy when you’re coughing and sneezing and generally miserable.”

That was a Friends episode once. Monica was sick and trying to get Chandler to have sex with her.”

Yeah, I remember that episode. I just hope you two are snubbed and don’t bring smelly flowers back here. They’d probably aggravate my noise.”

Roses don’t smell that much, but I can keep any flowers I get in my room if it bothers you.”

We’ll see. I’m going to lay on the couch and hopefully fall asleep watching chocolate specials on the Food Network.

Sounds like a plan. I guess I should go get ready to go out and enjoy my Steak tonight. Woo hoo!”
