You got to feel bad for my sister right now. She has two kids sick at home and a husband on bedrest with a bad back. And she lives with my mother while her house is being renovated. She needs sympathy. And guess what is the worst part of that trilogy?
You got it: the bedridden husband. He is experiencing the bad back version of the man cold. Its not really his fault -- its that extra Y chromosome makes all men revert to whiny children when they are sick.
The definition of man cold in the Urban Dictionary: Only men get man colds. They are the worst colds you can get. They are near-fatal. Your man will not be able to lift a finger for two weeks, if you are lucky.
I don't know if this video invented the term man cold. But it is a good reminder that if you are sufferring with a sick husband, then you are not alone.
The only cure for a man cold is sports, cartoons and endless whining, followed by Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwartenegger movies. You will know they are on the mend when they start giving you puppy dog eyes and reminding you that they are in bed...all day and are lonely.
