‘IT’S GOING AROUND’ or ‘SOMETHING’S GOING AROUND’

Whenever I tell someone I‘m not feeling good they always say ‘something’s going around’ or ‘it’s going around.’ Why does everyone say this? Maybe it’s so I won’t think it’s my fault I got sick, that I must’ve caught it from someone else. Or maybe it’s so I won’t think I’m the only person who’s sick. Because if I think that, I may start thinking I have something more than just a cold or a twenty-four hour virus. Like some rare disease and I’m going to die. I guess I know I’m in trouble when I tell people I’m sick and no one says ‘something’s going around’ or ‘it’s going around.’ But I think the real reason people say ‘something’s going around’ or ‘it’s going around’ is misery loves company. We feel better knowing others are also sick. (NOTE: Statistics show that only five people in the world have ever successfully sued another for giving hem a cold)
