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.
