30. I had pneumonia for a solid week and didn’t go to a hospital because I didn’t want to talk to people on the phone to make an appointment . I was sure I’d “get over it”.
Couple days in my Mom calls and says I sound terrible so she sends a cousin over. He walks into my house with me sweating like crazy, with the heat cranked up, the window near me wide open (Northern Midwest January so it’s fucking cold), in my boxers. He brings me some Gatorade and cold medicine. Choke all that down.
Next day his mom shows up and takes me to the hospital. “Hey, you’ve had pneumonia, you shouldn’t wait like this next time”
31. I dropped a college course when I heard two people whisper my name behind me.
