Episode 224: Sick-Day Sampler
00:50 Plane Plague: With one podcaster down for the count, we bring you an assortment of our past conversations on sickness and health. Your road map:
01:07 When Parents Get Sick: When Mom or Dad is under the weather, does everything stop? Does life go on? Does it matter which parent we're talking about? We talked about it all on this speed round from February 2017.
05:18 Do You Ever Take a Sick Day? Sometimes, we wish for the ability to just put school or work on hold for 24 hours and take good care of ourselves. But sick days are few and far between for freelancers, alas, and even sparser for parents, as we discussed in this November 2016 speed round.
09:21 Not the Doctor!: It's important to look after our health, sure, but some of the stuff we have to put up with before and during that exam make us kind of sick of it, as we complained in this speed round from June 2017.
13:26 When Kids Are the Patients: We sometimes don't have the patience, and have drastically misinterpreted our kids' actual significant health emergencies, from appendicitis to ulcers to a broken wrist. We confessed all in this segment from an April 2016 episode.
