SOMETHING’S GOING AROUND, AND I WISH IT WOULD GO AROUND ME

Every time I’m sick someone always says, “Something’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 have caught it from someone else. It’s that person’s fault. Or maybe it’s so I won’t think I’m the only person who’s sick.  Because if I think that, I might 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 know I’ll be in trouble if I ever tell someone I’m not feeling well, and they don’t say,  “Something’s going around.” But I think the real reason people say, “Something’s going around” is misery loves company.  We feel better knowing others are also sick.  But I really wish just one time it would go around me.
