GNO:No Sick Days for Women

Twitter GNO Button

Hosted by: Carissa @ GoodNCrazy and Jyl @ MommyGossip

FIRST: Go See Jyl's Blog.

My little girl was sick a few weekends ago. Her little brother had to fill in for her at the local 5K run/walk the Dad had signed her up for. And then we had to draw straws over who was going to stay home with her from church. (Actually we switched it out, half and half.)

And this past weekend? Poor hubby has a cold.

Wait. Not just a cold.


If you do nothing else all week.

If you aren't laughing or at the very least forwarding this to the Man in your life? I'm very sorry for you. (Poor. Poor. Bunny.) ...You would get that if you pushed the button...)

TOPIC for Twitter GNO.

How do you deal with sick children? Sick husbands?
And when you get sick?
Then What?

OMG THAT was the funniest thing I have ever seen.

Reminds me of the Tylenol Cold Amoxcylin episode of last year. I'll post about that later in the week!

Chichiboulie said...

Fabulous! Thank you, I needed a giggle.

Kate said...

Oh, aren't you the sweetest person ever?!! And you know how absolutely lame I know how when the video first starts and you can hear the british lady in the background but you can't see her yet? Well I thought the video was actually of you and your husband and you were just talking in a crazy british accent!!! How lame am I. I was like, wow, she's got a good british accent, until I realized it wasn't you!!

My husband doesn't get sick. He could be coughing up blood, drainage coming out of his eyes, but he's not sick.

Kaci said...

LOL! That was hilarious! I'll have to try this out!

Zip n Tizzy said...

Very funny and so true.

Unknown said...

I love the man cold video! So very true. I may or may not join you tomorrow. I am still visiting my mom in NY.

ParentingPink said...

Oh, I can so relate! My girls and I are sick right now. Ugh! But when my hubby get that's a different story! Thanks for the laugh!

Sarah said...

Yes, that video pretty much sums it up.

O ... M ... G!!!!!!!! Too funny! Mine is the biggest baby (or dare I say "bunny") when he's sick too ... but I laid in bed for hours begging him to take me to the doctor ... when I decided I was going to drive myself he finally took me ... cursing the whole time about how HE was going to bget sick from the germs in the waiting room *sigh* ... yeah ... I was rushed to the hospital with an acute appendicitis! Men! Sometimes I swear!!! *huGs* Suzanne

P.S. He IS watching this video as soon as he gets home! LOL

Jenni said...

That Man Cold thing was TOO FUNNY!

Wildtree Kristie said...

Video was hysterical! Man Cold....ugh, they suck!

Looking forward to GNO tomorrow night with my cranberry/sprite cocktail :-)

He had CLEARLY been infected by the insensitive female, and the virus multiplies when it hits testosterone...he never had a chance against her thoughtless onslaught.

Michelle said...

So nice to know we are not alone isnt't. The only time I am allowed to take to my bed is after a c-section and then I still have lots of little visitors!

Okay, okay, have a laugh at our expense. We work all day to earn money for you to have internet service and twitter about, when we'd rather be home with you and the kids. When we get sick, nobody is doing our work at work anymore than somebody comes by to do your work at home when you're sick (oh, except for the relief society, forgot that, and oh, they also bring you meals? How nice for you.) So we have to crash for a day or two to heal ourselves, otherwise we just let it drag out for weeks and weeks until you say, "jeez, hon, you've been sick for like seven weeks." Yeah, I know.

Love, Seth (who's almost all the way better because he took a day off to sleep)

Seths of the world, unite!

Randy and Staci said...

I watched it twice and then emailed it to every woman I know. We can all relate ...

KatieZ said...

Hey, can't make it tonight:( Have another GNO planned! But will try to make it to GNO next week. Have fun and tell me how it goes!

United Studies said...

I have seen that video several times but always laugh! However, in Peter's defense I must say that he is actually quite the opposite with colds. He usually doesn't lay around and act sick unless he has something really bad.

Yep. Men are wimps!

LazyCrazyMama said...

LOLOLOLOL!!!!! that is so right on! Hilarious!!

Jocasta said...
