The Retired Bloke

Man Flu

Creeping stealthily 

No warning

One minute well

Next minute hell

Head banging

Throat scratching

Breathing wheezing

Continuously coughing

No end

To the misery

That I am causing

To all around me!

    Ah - a good twist to the tale in those final lines RB - - "man-flue" is simply notorious - - love the graphic you chose too.

    That last line says it all.
    Thank you for my first laugh of the day.
