Writing Update #6

Well that week sucked.

I caught a really bad summer cold from my mum (damn her!) with coughing and sneezing and headaches and all that nasty stuff. Yesterday I thought I was already doing a bit better, but after delivering newspapers and driving my sister to a friend's house, I barely managed going to the elections before I collapsed on my bed and slept for a few hours.

And since writing with a headache isn't fun either, my word count for this week is exactly 0. It sucks, but I can't help it :(

*hugs* Health has to come before writing, it's more important. Hope you're getting better!

It's hard with my sick mum always around, but I keep trying! xD
Thank you! *carefully hugs back*

So sorry to hear you're sick! I hope you get better soon. Sleep, fluids and vitamin C is my prescription. You need a Ryo to come and take care of you.

Thank you, Dr. Brit! ^_^ Oh, and could you prescribe me a Ryo, too? Because I don't have one yet and I really need one... Pretty please? (If the Ryos are out of stock, I would also take a Dee - that kind is supposed to be very resistant to sickness...)

Prescription: One Ryo in nurturing mode to bring you herbal tea, lemonade and assorted cold medications. He will fluff your pillows, express sympathy, place flowers on your bedside table, and if necessary, he will bathe your fevered brow with cool water.

I don't think a Dee would be suitable. They rarely get sick themselves, so they're not very sympathetic about the needs and limitations of sick people. Besides, they always try to see if they can get you to get out of bed and make them a sandwich. You might cry out feebly for water or aspirin, and they wouldn't hear you because they would be too busy watching a World Cup game in the next room at truly annoying decibel levels.

Nope, a Ryo is what you need. I'm sending him Express Overnight, and he should be arriving sometime within the next 12 hours. Let your family know so they're not too shocked.

Thank you, the Ryo that you sent me has just arrived and he's doing a really good job! He's caring for both me and my mum now. And also the cat whenever she pukes xD

My sister and her exchange partner will be thrilled when they come back from school and see my brand new Ryo. Not to mention they'll be jealous, too! :D

Yeah you're probably right about that - the only person Dee would enjoy to take care of is Ryo, anyway :D

Now I'll excuse myself, Ryo is preparing a cold and flu bath for me... hehehe, maybe being sick is not that bad after all! ;D

Yeah, but I should warn you that if Dee misses the Ryo, he's likely to show up and take over the living room and the TV remote. He's also quite likely to put the moves on your Ryo whenever he thinks he can get away with it. (Bonus, eh?) But you'd better stock up on cold cuts because he'll eat you out of house and home. Your dad may or may not enjoy watching sports with him.
