John has man-flu. He has taken to his bed with bottles of whisky and paracetomol to be fussed over by his womenfolk until he revives or dies. Judging by the strength of the piteous moans emanating from the bedroom, there is every chance of a recovery.

Why is it, that when men are sick, they REALLY suffer, but women just get on with it?

No time off for good behaviour when you're a mother.

Just teasing, John. Hope you feel better soon!

Dear Rowena
It's because we are the weaker sex,

LOLOL. When my men do this it's piteous. I'd rather be ill myself. Truly. I lost three weeks of writing this season to all the guys being sick in succession.

And Rowena is right, when I'm sick I get upset at myself for not writing, and pray silently that I may die at the keyboard.

Of course, it could be said I rather worsen my case. Good on you to actually rest, John. Hope you're recovered by now!
