Lill: I’ve spent $300 at the drugstore in hopes that the bottle of Echinacea, chewable Vitamin C tablets, three boxes of Cold FX, a gallon tub of hand sanitizer I intend on bathing in, and something called ‘lemon zinger’ tea will prevent the inevitable.

Jill: Fighting a cold are we?

Lill: It is the eve before battle Jillian.

Jill: Should I batten down the sofa and prepare the PVR?

Lill: Good plan.

Jill: So what has prompted this strategic offensive?

Lill: I shared a subway train with a troupe of third graders this morning – two of them had noticeably runny noses.

Jill: I see – and as your constitution is that of a fruit fly you are making ready for immune systemic warfare – makes perfect sense.

Lill: *Claps hands* Right, I’m off to quarantine myself in my room with a jar of honey and box of acetaminophen – see you in a few days.

Jill: *Lip trembling* You will write to me won’t you.

Lill: Everyday.

Jill: *Sigh* I’ll slip a hot-water bottle under your door in the evenings.

Lill: I’d be most grateful.

Jill: *Sniff* Well, we all need to do our bit.

Lill: *Fist pump* Victory and phlegm-free living at all costs!

Jill: I shall pray for you Lillian.

Lill: Please do – all I have to carry me onward are the prayers of others.

Jill: I imagine this could be potentially traumatic.

Lill: No doubt.

Jill: Life-threatening even.

Lill: I cannot lie, there might be casualties.

Jill: *Raises eyebrow* One can certainly hope.

About Lill and Jill

We are Lillian and Jillian; best friends and roommates. We blog to capture the seemingly trivial moments of thought and expression that make us smile; the often-times ridiculous way we see the world and how we live in it. We ask that you think well of us despite our propensity for drinking saccharine-laden alcoholic beverages, affection for 90′s boy-bands, and regular inappropriateness.
