Being sick is one of the worst things in my life. Every time I get sick, I always have people staying away from me because they do not want to get sick. It has gotten to the point where I have been uninvited to places, have not been able to hug a person, have had people run away as if they have just seen a ghost, and other unfortunate things.
Seeing people run away from me when I am sick has caused me to think that I am in fact a walking germ. Somehow this seemed to place me in the same category as King Kong, Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, and Godzilla.
For those of you who do not know Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, he is from Ghostbusters. He is so cute yet he was shunned from the world. King Kong seemed nice as well, but he was misunderstood, and Godzilla is well...Godzilla.
The above video demonstrates how everyone is running away from Godzilla. That is exactly what happens to me when I am sick.
Now I know there has been a swine flu epidemic going on, and that many people can be germ phobic, but I do not see why people have to dive into bushes when they see me two feet away. Sure as of now I am a walking germ, but I can easily just put on a body suit, gloves, and a helmet if asked to.
However, that would not be possible in Floridian heat. I honestly do not know how people, who work in amusement parks, can walk around in animal suits for an entire day, especially when the sun is scorching to the point where you can fry an egg on the ground.
I prefer to have people run away from me than to explode into millions of pieces because of the scorching sun.
Yes, I prefer to be the walking germ.
