    It's Christmas Eve and I've got the man-flu (of course).

    Just want to wish every one of you as happy a festive period as can possibly be. For those of us who don't recognise the festival then "happy non-specific period of time off work".

    Bad time for flu, but at least you should go into the new year healthy. (We appreciate our good health most when recovered from an illness).

    Have a splendid Christmas, despite the flu.

    His coffee table is covered in wadded snotty tissue. But men don't get colds. Ergo, he has the flu. But not the dreaded influenza.

    We don't ask for directions, either.

    Robbie,

    My assumption is he wants everyone to feel sorry for him, or why bother to even mention it.

    Apathist,

    He should have gotten the flu shot, even if he got the flu, it wouldn't be so bad.

    Smart men do ask for directions, so they don't end up driving in circles. It is the stupid ones who don't ask!!

    Suz,

    Same flu you would get, only some men moan and groan about it and act like big babies!
