8. Contemplating whether you should have gotten the flu shot or not…
I’ve gone through two boxes of tissues, 5 bottles of water, 2 packs of ramen, and a lot of cough drops over the past two days. I laid in bed for most of the weekend and didn’t sleep or study nearly as much as I should have… I need to start getting the flu shot every year again

9. Questioning if you’re getting the flu or is it just hayfever
Do i have the flu or is it normal to have your nose run like crazy in this weather?
— The One & Only (@serwers1911) October 29, 2017
I’d like to consider being able to go through an entire box of tissues in 24 hours a talent but that might be the flu talking
