i know i’m relatively anti-social to begin with, but i don’t enjoy talking to people who are sick with highly communicable diseases. am i alone in this? does everybody else just go out and socialize while they’re sick? do they feel guilty for spreading their germs? do they worry that other sick people will germ over them while their immune system is suppressed? i feel a cold coming on with swollen glands and itchy ears and have a party i really want to go to tonight. i cleaned my ears with qtips dipped in rubbing alcohol & i’m drinking hot lemon water and have not been sick yet this year and really, really want to keep up the streak. is it rude to go to a party wearing a bandana around your face? or a surgical mask?
