“You want to be sick enough to stay home, but well enough to enjoy video games”

An acceptable sickness to some people is being too sick to go to school or to work, but well enough to play video games at home. “Homemade turkey and vegetable broth with rotini for me and the youngest, who’s too sick for school. But well enough to play video games” was posted on Twitter on October 5, 2012. “It’s funny to me that a child can be sick enough to not go to school but well enough to play video games all day long” was posted on Twitter on January 24, 2013.

Sick enough to not be able to go to family functions, but well enough to play video games is pretty much the sweet spot of living life.
