The 7 Friends You Have When You’re Sick


Y’all know I love these kinds of posts. I had strep (I don’t care what the results say) and this is what my friends said.

1. The Ride or Die: 

Where are you? You just landed? Okay I’ll meet you at your apartment in an hour with medicine. C U soon.

2. The Funny Friend: 

At least you don’t have to go to work.

Yes I do.  

Umm what?! Strep throat isn’t a good excuse anymore? Hell, that and pinkeye were always a sure-fire way to stay home.

3. The Party Friend: 

Want to go to a bbq in Brooklyn?

I have strep. 

Oh okay. Gross. Don’t come.  Text me lata.

4. Religious Friend

May Allah give you healing. My heart is aching for you.

5. Positive Friend 

Good luck tomorrow

I have strep or pharyngitis 

Excuse me? OMG that’s when your voice is like painful right? I mean throat?


It’s okay your voice will be raspy and that’s kinda hot for the first day

6. Curious Friend 

So I have strep after all   

Who ya been kissing?

7. The Rival Never Dies Friend 

I’m so sick

You should become a Buckeye fan. You’d feel better.

Oh, and friend 7 is named Eric Duncan. I will not give him the cloak of confidentiality.

Love them all. And I’m feeling better if anyone out there was wondering 🙂

  1. You forgot the friend that avoids you at all costs when you’re sick (flash back to you standing at the entry to my room at Tappan spraying an over-size can of lysol everywhere).

    You around this weekend, Cook?
