Down and Out

“Stay away, I can’t afford to be sick.
Hand sanitizer please, and make it quick!
I can’t have the flu,”
I moaned as I puked -
“I’m out of Tylenol, Nyquil, and Vics!”

    Situation is an alter ego. With a hidden identity. To explain I had to choose between her and someone else. I chose else.
