Man Cold Syndrome (aka, poor Den)

Emma believes that when I am sick I suffer from Man Cold Syndrome… WTF?

Friday, I busted my leg in judo class. I don’t think it’s broken, but it’s not a happy leg – there is definitely damage to the medial ligament of the knee and something funky is going on at the lateral side of my ankle. There is no walking, motorbike riding, car driving or BJJ for sometime – basically no fun to be had for a while.

When Emma heard the news, she looked stricken. I could practically hear what was going on in her head: “Oh God, get me out of here… it’s a Man Cold!”

Shame on you Emma… am I really that demanding???

Oi!!! Where is that double-mocha-soy-chai-frappucino in a pink mug that I asked for from you like 20 minutes ago? …Sheesh!

    First of all, that is still one of the funniest videos I’ve ever seen in my life.

    Secondly… Poor Den.

    Thirdly, I don’t know about you other ladies out there but Man Cold Syndrome is real. Denis refuses to go and see the doctor, refuses to let me get him crutches or strap his leg or something, but is quite happy to lie prone on the couch, calling out demands and requests and then when he can see that I’m about to crack, he’ll try to get up himself and pathetically hobble through the house wincing and groaning all the while…

    And God forbid I even look at his leg! “Careful of the leg! Don’t get too close to the leg! AAAHHHH!! I think you just BREATHED ON THE LEG!!”

    That video is great! I am sure that my wife would emphatically support your little “man cold” theory. For some reason, she thinks I’m a big baby when I am sick, injured, starved for attention, perfectly healthy, etc. I just don’t see it…

    Of course you wouldn’t see it Dustin. My boyfriend becomes a big baby when he’s sick & as much as I hate to admit it, I baby him (until he urkes my nerves). Fortunately enough for me, he will listen to me when I tell him to go to the doctor. : )

    Having read this I believed it was extremely informative. I appreciate you taking the time and effort to put this short article together. I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading and posting comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!

    It’s hard to come by well-informed people in this particular topic, however, you seem like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks
