Sick Days When You’re 8 Vs. Sick Days When You’re 28

When you are 28: You drag yourself out of bed to call your boss, making sure to sound extra sick so they don't think you're lying. Your boss thinks you're lying anyway and chews you out.

When you are 8: You hang out and play sega channel while your parents go get your prescription.
