Skipping school was fun – especially when we were old enough to drive. But sometimes, we were legitimately sick and had to stay home for the day.
Old millennials will definitely remember actually LIKING the medicine their moms gave them, watching daytime television and the dreaded thermometer check.
See how many old millenial ‘sick day’ memories you have:
These ‘measuring spoons’ that gave us just the right amount of the good stuff:
That “bubblegum medicine” we actually liked to take:
These thermometers our moms always stuck under our tongues:

Sometimes being sick could get boring. Sure, we didn’t have to do any school work or listen to a boring lesson about fractions, but we were definitely missing out on all the things our friends did at recess.
If we were really sick, we had to find ways to entertain ourselves when we weren’t puking or sleeping in some Gravol-induced coma.
Who else passed their time like this?
