You know what's great about this kid?
Even when he feels really, really, REALLY bad, he is still so stinking funny and determined and full of all his usual "spit and swagger."
His brothers thought they'd sneak in and put a different cartoon on the computer.
They thought he was too sick to put up a fight.
They thought wrong.
He raised one little finger in their direction and said, "You don't want to do that! I have amazing powers of death and destruction! If I blow just ONE of my super germ breaths on you, you'll be sorry!"
They backed slowly away, and he smirked.
He smirked long and hard.
