I hate when my family gives me their cold! >.<
Ugh…that sucks when other people give you colds…
He may not get the cold back, but it’s entirely possible he might be in a lot of pain if he doesn’t haul ass soon…. I imagine even a sickened Shell could kick his ass somewhat hard….
Eh, you’ve got no energy when you’ve got a bad cold. I doubt she could give him more than two or three noogies before she had to stop and rest.
He’s a dead man.
Ours usually start a day or 2 apart, but we double up on the vitamins
and knock out the cold within hours of each other. never had a snot bubble that big though
At least it is more romantic than getting a cold from an overweight sweatty workmate because you spend time in a truck cab together.
*Atchoo!!* Sniff….d’oh…I really do gotta code in by dose 🙁
LOL!! He’s in trouble now!!
I haven’t had a cold in so long I can’t remember it. Now allergies, allergies I get about 3 months out of the year, between Spring and Fall about a month and a half each.
And they are miserable allergies, headaches from sinus pressure, runny nose, obscured vision from the goop in my eyes… about the way I feel now except I’m minus the sinus pressure this early in the season…
yeah, I saw that coming. XD
This is the problem with ‘full disclosure’.
Right. Never be fully truthful with the government or women.
“Now don’t get mad, hun. If I gave it to you, then better now than later, ’cause you WILL get it.
“And if I didn’t? Then it’s better that I catch it now than later, and save myself the problems.”
Yep, jason better get used to it.
In a relationship, as a male you get used to being always in the wrong.
“If in a an arguement you find out you’re right, apologise to her at once, profoundly and with flowers!”
…I thought that it was a two-part rule:
1) The male is always wrong.
2) In case of breakdown, see rule 1.
BTW: You certainly can catch the same cold twice. Mutation rate on bacterium is insane. Which means you could pass it on to someone, have it develop into another germ, and then you get to re-enjoy it.
Except, of course, that colds are cause by viruses, and mutations are rarely helpful to the mutated.
Except, of course, that mutations ARE helpful to viruses- that’s what allows them to thrive. If they didn’t mutate, then they wouldn’t spread quite so easily. (That whole immune system thing would get in their way)
Worse — the Common Cold is a retrovirus. Those mutate the fastest.
But, technically, the mutation is a new strain, so it’s no longer the same germ.
Ah, but what if said girl is allergic to flowers?
See? Women are just tyrants.
Eventually, the penny dropped and the mechanism emitted a faint creaking sound…
Gave it to her? More like she took it, eh.
Uh oh… This could be a relationship ender.
Naw, just a prelude to future make-up sex.
end a wonderful relationship over a cold…..man u girls are tough. he needs to go grab the vodka, oj, roll of ultra soft tp, and a bunch of movies. and fix moms recipe for chicken noodle soup for later…..actually i hate chicken noodle soup. campbells tomato with saltenes, now thats the ticket.
Quick Dude – sorry – OFFICER Dude, Time to wipe up some Homemade chicken soup for her even if its ‘not great’, She will LOVE the fact you’re fussing over her.
On the other hand, shes PI$$ED that you got her sick. If shes mad now, God help you if you KNOCK ‘ER UP!!!!
PUT DOWN THE TORCHES AND PITCHFORKS, I WAS JOKEING!!!!!
RUN FOREST! RUN!!!!
She did pounce on him earlier. So may actually have given herself his cold.
As I had mentioned before… the best way to get rid of a cold is to give it to someone else….
Not realizing that she was the recipient!!!
Remember 2 rules in a relationtionship…
1. As a the male figure in the relationship you can be right…
or you can be happy!
2. 6 words to always remember
So admit profusely that you gave her the cold and vow never to do it again.
And prepare to shell out some serious pampering and TLC to appease her.
Also never volunteer information if the recipient of that information can pound you into oblivion!!

There will be a momentary pause for station identification while Shelly chokes the life out of Justin.
Now, now, Shelly, just calm down. I’m sure Justin never delibertly set out to give you a cold. Logically, he would never just … oh wait, I forgot I was talking about a female. Nevermind.
Despite what our mamas told us, it’s not always nice to share.
Shell needs to talk to one of her Comanche grandmas, and get some old school remedies cooked up. And stock up on the various and sundry OTC medications. When our people fight colds, we fight colds. And win.
I knew there was a reason I always wanted to be a native american when I was a kid. Better hair, not pasty pale, -and- you can kick a common cold.
On both sides of the family, we won’t go down easy, and it’d take something heavy duty to put us to bed. Even now, in my 40th year of life, I can hold colds and flu at bay for days, then on the the first free day to myself, get really sick for the day, dose up on the ‘dryl and ‘Quil, and be fine the next day. High vitality from both parents, above average healing from Ma, and quick recovery from Pop. But I quail at the sight of hypodermic needles.
Well, the best way to get rid of a cold is to give it to some one else.
Even if you have to force it on them.
Run Justin run!
Shelly: “Hey M, can you do me a favor?”
Monica: “Yeah, what?”
Shelly: “DROP MY BOYFRIEND IN THE LAKE!!!!! >.<"
Way to not be tactful, Officer Tactless.
Oh, but she looks scary in that last panel.
TIME TO GO, JUSTIN!
This happens to me constantly from other family members, my stepbrother and stepmother are social butterflies, so of course they always get the colds first and they THEN give it to us! Ugh!
