The Flu Enchilada

Bridgette has had the flu for about a week now.

She is aching, feverish, plugged up, nauseous, coughing, and unable to sleep, swallow, or breathe. I feel so bad for her, but at the same time, her illness has helped me learn something important about myself.

You see, I am immortal.

She and I hung around on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, and I didn’t get sick. While we weren’t kissing, we were in close proximity, and today, Friday morning, I still feel fit as a fiddle. Not only do I not have the flu now, but I now realize that I can’t remember the last time I actually had the flu – it’s been at least 6 years. My only hypothesis is that sometime during those years I must have advanced to a realm beyond men and become a demi-god of some sort. I recall eating a very peculiar enchilada in 1999 that might have done it – its taste was bitter and pungent, perhaps enough to help me ascend to eternal life.

Yesterday, I felt behooved to test this theory and make certain that I am greater than all men. I had Bridgette repeatedly cough directly into my mouth and open sores. She did so with vigor, sending her diseased particles flying into my body. I then collected roughly a pint of her flu-ridden mucus into a small milk carton and swallowed it whole. All this, and yet I still am healthy and virile. It can no longer be denied – I am impervious to the flu and all other maladies which plague the lives of mortal men.

I wish to travel back to this taco-stand that I visited in 1999 that sold me Excalibur – the Enchilda of Life. I will purchase another enchilada and give it to Bridgette to heal her of this sickness. I will rub the moist, plump enchilada on her stuffed sinuses and gaze in wonder as its powers sear away all iniquity from her body. I will then hold Excalibur aloft and summon blood-red lightning from the sky to arbitrarily kill a nearby rabbit. I shall then be christened Gorlock, Commander of Pain. Then, and only then, all will be accomplished.

Good morrow.

    We will laugh at you and burn this site down in response.

    Congrats to Bridgette for coughing vigorously and managing to not throw up. (or was exposing yourself to her stomach contents part of the test, too?)

    If this were a real JLP blog, Bridgette would have deluged you with flu-ridden feces…

    You’ve gone soft, Peter.
