I'm sick Answered

Does anyone have "good" excuses for sick-leave?
Not for myself, but someone else in the building (or not as it happens to be, but she might be back in for a day this month...)

So far I've got:
Rabies
Malaria
Rickets
Scurvy
The Black Death
Pendular-Plumbitis
Lumber-Lung
Plumber's crack
Juggler's despair
Achy-breaky-pelvis
Post-traumatic alien-abduction disorder
Electromagnetic hypersensitivity disorder
Arbeit-macht-krank disorder
Jogger's nipple
Xbox-thumbs
Lotto Letdown
Bluntman-chronic fatigue syndrome
prostate cancer
necrotising fasciitis
Death
Millennium super-bug
Happy Virus

(The cartoon published in the free-paper amused me, and that's the only reason it's here)

I'd just say swine flu or chicken pox, However you can only use them 1 time, and not in a row.

Don't forget ILOVEYOU!
I came really close to catching it!
But then I was like, Wait... Nobody could possibly love me...
So I deleted it!
And the news said I was RIGHT!

By the way, new research indicates a possible common viral origin (XMRV)for both CFS and prostate cancer, so she could claim the latter ratherthan the former ;->
