My Favorites On a Sick Day
Which brings me to the point of today's post: my favorite things to do when I'm sick. You know, sick enough to not be at the computer but not so sick that I'm incoherent beneath a pile of blankets in my bed.
First, movie watching. I've found over the years that a good rom-com is great for the sickly soul. My go-tos are Sandra Bullock movies (Two Weeks Notices is a fave), but I'll settle for Julia Roberts (Notting Hill comes to mind) or Kate Hudson.
Second, chicken noodle soup. What am I munching on while watching movies? Chicken noodle soup, of course, and I'm not so much munching as I am sipping from my favorite mug. And when it gets too cold, I'll call RadioMan to warm it up a bit.
Third, playing video games. Mario games are a favorite, and since I have about 7 on my Nintendo 3DS, I have a lot to choose from. Some are hard and require a lot of attention. Some are super simple and I can just float through them.
Notice I didn't list reading as a favorite pastime when I'm sick. When I want to be lazy? Reading is a go-to. When I'm enjoying the summer sun or a winter snow? Reading is a must. When I'm sick, I don't want to expend the brain power it takes to read...because I might miss something really, truly, excellently good. I save reading for when I'm in full control of my brain functions!
What about you? What do you do when you're fighting a cold or flu bug?
