(british) A fictitious, yet highly infectious disease; almost always used in the phrase "the dreaded lurgy", sometimes as a reference to flu-like symptoms
“Only in America - do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front of the store”
All I need.
My British friends call being sick "having the lurgy" or to be more precise, my BFF Lou would call me "Lurgy Girl" and offer to stab the lurgy for me. After spending way to much time and money I discover I have a double dose of the lurgy. *coughs* Oh joy.
Like most women when they're sick, I can function and get done all the little things that I need and want to get done. Unlike most women, I do not suffer in silence. I whine and complain and rail on like I'm dying. In other words, I act like a man. I HATE being sick but I must admit, the thought of an afternoon snuggled up on the couch with my blankie, the little dog and a good book is appealing. Right, I'm off to do just that. I leave you lot to your own devices. Carry on...
