I really would.
Only, ow, not a great idea right now.
I am a poorly sick crip right now. I literally ache all over, my entire torso hurts (and ye olde pain meds are doing an "eh" job). And I've been participating in pukefest 2008. Hopefully that's now over with but I do still hurt :-(
Mum just dropped in to bring me a small portion of food. She let herself in and found me in bed (actually the phone had woken me when she rang to say she was coming).
"OOOOh my poor poorly girl." says she.
following that up with
"Get out of bed! You won't sleep tonight!"
And, that, my friends, is what my family consider sympathy.
