Ginger: Ask your husband the doctor what I should do about this cold I have.
Ruby: I’m pretty sure he’ll just tell you what he told me – rest, vitamins, liquids.
Ginger: When did you get a cold?
Ruby: It started on Tuesday. You?
Ginger: Wednesday. Did you give me your cold?
Ruby: We haven’t seen each other since you came over Sunday night. There’s no way I could have given you this cold.
Ginger: We’ve emailed. You could have given me a computer-transmitted-disease. A computer virus!
Ruby: That’s not how computer viruses work. I’m sure we don’t have the same cold. Mine started with a cough that had no other symptoms.
Ginger: I had sinus pressure that would ordinarily accompany a cough, but no sinus issues otherwise.
Ruby: Oh…my…word…we have a co-demented cold!
Ginger: See? SEE? …ow… you did give me your cold!
Ruby: Only half of it!
Ginger: Because I wanted more than a sliver of it?
Ruby: Why would you want any part of a cold?
Ginger: I don’t know – you shared in the only time in the history of the world where sharing is the opposite of caring!
Ruby: I’m sorry I email-shared my cold with you.
Ginger: Just tell your husband the doctor that co-demented colds exist and now he has to cure both of us.
Ruby: I’ll do what I can.
Ruby: I’ll take some vitamin C, you go get some bedrest and we’ll get through this together, okay?
