This is an image I personally love. As a D&D player, I love the idea that new monsters and new challenges just mean that you've gotten enough XP to level up.
Sometimes, however, these challenges come in unfortunate or unpleasant forms.
Such as being so congested you can't breathe.
The other day I was in charge of watching Philip, and he ended up falling asleep on my lap. Unfortunately, I believe he was also sick that day because guess who woke up the next morning with a stuffy nose and a sore throat?
And currently my nose is still having issues so I can't exactly breathe quite right yet. It's irritating, but I have that picture up there reminding me that I just leveled up.
Besides that, I have the imaginary voices of my body talking to me.
Their conversations go something like this.
Nose: YOU DON'T NEED TO BREATHE. BREATHING IS FOR WUSSES.
Me: No! I need air!
Lungs: NEED. OXYGEN.
Nose: MWAHAHAHAHA. NO YOU DON'T.
Throat: Ow ow ow ow ow. I'm in pain. PAIN, I TELL YOU. PAIN.
Me: SHUT UP EVERYONE. WHY CAN'T YOU JUST DO WHAT YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE DOING?
Nose: You wimp. OXYGEN. Who needs oxygen?
Me: I DO.
Nose: Never! Have a little originality! You don't need to breathe. BREATHING IS UNECESSARY.
Throat: No, seriously, I really hurt.
Me: Shutttt up.
Voice: Uh, sorry, but I'm starting to give out a little. I think I'm a bit under the weather.
Nose: MWAHAHAHAHAHA MY EVIL PLAN IS WORKING.
Throat: I will kill you. D:<
Me: x.x I'm going to go take a nap now.
So I'm still working on getting better. But while all of this is going on, I have several super heroes coming to help me.
Such as tea.
Tea: I AM HERE TO SAVE THE DAY.
Throat: YES. PAIN RELIEF. I AM NO LONGER IN PAIN.
Me: Hah. Take that, nose.
Nose: Noooooooo! Airflow! D:
Tea: :( You just ran out of tea.
Nose: :D :D :D >:D I CAN GO BACK TO NOT LETTING YOU BREATHE.
Throat: PAIN. IS RETURNING. HELP ME. SOMEONE. SAVE ME.
...and that's how it's been going for me for the past few days. What about you guys?
