    Baby I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake... with this miserable fever.

    1. When you're feeling perfectly healthy... but then your sick coworker comes to work and sneezes all over you anyway.

    2. When you start coughing the next day.

    3. And then your throat starts to hurt... and your nose gets a bit stuffy... and you're starting to feel really gross...

    13. When you've had a BIT too much NyQuil...

    15. And when they ACTUALLY go to work and you're upset about it all day long.

    16. When you get to the point where you're actually ANGRY with the flu. As if it were a person.
