Five on Friday

Chicken Soup for the Friday Fiver’s Soul

  1. How often do you usually get sick each year? Once in the winter.
  2. Which is worse to catch: a cold or the flu? I wouldn’t know the difference, because I don’t run a fever or vomit when I’m sick.
  3. Do you plan to get a flu shot? Why or why not? Yes, because they’re free through work and… it just seems like a good idea.
  4. What are your favorite home remedies for cold and flu symptoms? Chicken soup with fresh crushed garlic and cayenne pepper for a head cold. Or hot orange drink (like “Tang”).
  5. When you’re sick do you take “sick days” or do you force yourself to continue working? It depends on how things are at work. As long as I won’t feel bad leaving them to fend for themselves, I’ll stay home. I have no problems staying home – I earned those sick days, darn it!
