I am home sick, with cats sleeping on my feet, with what might be the flu and what might just be a nasty cold.
I could go to the doctor and find out which. That would mean going to the doctor. Which would mean a co-pay. That would mean $40.00.
Since it's probably not flu, I'll stay here and drink a lot of tea and eat a ton of generic over the counter drugs. (Which I had to show my ID to buy.) Odds are even if it is the flu, I won't get complications and die, given I'm pretty hearty and well-nourished.
It's the free market at work, y'all.
