When I am sick, I want to clean. A time of sickness is not the ideal time to clean. Dust flies into my already clogged nose, my germs spread across already clean dishes and clothes, and disinfectant doesn’t seem to have the head-clearing capability of hot tea or a humidifier. During a normal day, I want to lounge around and ignore the mess. However, when I’m ill, I want my surroundings as clean as possible. I wish I had this urge to clean more often. Then, I wouldn’t lie in a dusty, cluttered room with a head full of snot.
