Someone gave me mono for Christmas this year. Since I was scheduled to work, I had to go in with mono. I carried it around with me and eventually others learned that I had a stomach-ache as well. Then they demanded to see my athlete’s foot!! Ew.
All in all, my maladies ended up amusing almost everyone who was exposed. And I’m actually kind of looking forward to acquiring an ulcer. I wonder if they take requests… an MRSA or clostridium difficile mascot would look great in the isolation rooms….
