Seven Stages of the Married Cold
Sugar dumpling, I've really been worried about my baby
girl. That's a bad sniffle and there's no telling about
these things with all the strep that's going around.
I'm going to put you in the hospital for a general
check-up and a good rest. I know the food's terrible,
but I'm going to bring you dinner every night from
Rosini's. I've got it all arranged with the floor
Listen, darling, I don't like the sound of that cough.
I'm going to call Doc Miller to rush over here. Now you
go to bed like a good girl just for papa.
Maybe you'd better lie down, honey. Nothing like a
little rest when you're feeling lousy. I'll bring you
something. Have we got any canned soup?
Now look, dear, be sensible. After you've fed the kids
and gotten the dishes done and the floor mopped, you'd
better lie down for a while.
Why don't you take a couple of aspirins?
Try gargling or something instead of just sitting
around barking like a seal all evening!
Would you stop coughing on me?!? Are you trying to
give me pneumonia?!?
