Being Sick: As Told by "The Office"

Being sick really sucks, especially when you are at college. I don’t know about you, but my mom seems to care about my sickness a heck of a lot more when I am at school than when I am at home. Which is nice but it would be nicer if she, or someone was around to take care of me. But alas, you are alone to take care of yourself. Sickness spreads around a college campus so quickly, the inevitability of it is almost comical. And what is more comical than “The Office?” So, here for your viewing pleasure are the stages of sickness as told by “The Office.”
