Woman are always a little disparaging about blokes who get a cold and make like they are dying, you know the scenario “he’s off work today, nothing wrong with him, he’s just got man flu (raised eyebrow)”!
A man is like a highly specified, critically balanced and finely tuned F1 racing engine. Where as a woman, is more like a single cylinder two stroke engine found driving some industrial water pump in a far flung corner of an African field.
Imagine the virus or cold germs are like a handful of sand. Throw the sand into an F1 engine and there will be a catastrophic systems failure. Throw the sand into the old donkey pump engine and it is likely to cough a bit, splutter, maybe smoke a little and probably miss a beat or two whilst groaning a little however, it will usually continue on with its task!
