For the last week, I have been cursed with the experience of shapeshifting from cat to human and as a result, having the most awful cold.
Human bodies are so fragile, I swear…
But since a lot of you cats do not know the terrible effects (aka the cold) of turning into a human, I am here to help you!
First off, being sick is no walk in the park. I know, I know, as a cat, our bodies are strong and we have very powerful legs to jump from the ground to the kitchen counter. However, humans can’t do that. And they sure do get sick easily. As a human, you will be racked with coughing fits, and not just regular coughs… wet coughs too.
On the bright side, you get to skip school to rest and watch movies instead. On the other hand, you’ll have more homework (double ew) and you’ll be stuck with wondering what the hell is going on in math class. And don’t be fooled, it’s nearly impossible to watch a movie when all your coughing blocks out the sound.
When you’re sick, you’ll be forced to gargle salt water and squeeze lemons to put in your tea (which is actually quite difficult if your human body decided to go breaking one of your wrists). You’ll use up all your tissues and you will feel constantly tired, even though lying down creates more coughing. It’ll be impossible to breathe through your nose, but breathing through your mouth can cause more coughing too. There is simply no way to win this war.
Well, since I am (hopefully) nearing the end of this, I will be able to enjoy life again. But be careful for as soon as you start to feel better, a coughing fit is almost guaranteed to start again.
In the end, I would rate this experience no stars because it really sucked.
