Flu? Who Me? Nah
Sick men are worse than sick toddlers. When guys feel a little tickle in their throat they're down for the count. Me?

I heard a strange, high-pitched screaming coming from my son Henry's room and rushed in to see what was going on. I should've known--Serge, my husband, got poop on his finger again. Just a smear, but you would've thought he lost an appendage. Now, my husband makes his own furniture out of barn wood, can tile floor like a pro and apparently has no problem gutting a deer. But a little poop smeared on the same hand that reached inside hot deer guts, and OH MA SWEET JESUS, all bets are off. Me? I get a little poop on my finger during a diaper change, and I'll go make myself a nice sandwich after I'm done. Poop schmoop. Our varied reactions to poop got me to thinking about all the ways in which women are more tenacious than dudes. Seriously, have you ever met a man who, when sick, doesn't act worse than your teething baby? Exactly. Here then are seven ways women are tougher than men. - By Monica Bielanko
