Word of the day: Man-sick
When a male uses the vulnerability of being sick (the severity of the illness does not matter) in order to be taken care of and make questionable/illogical medical, dietary and lifestyle choices.
The phenomenon is a likely remnant of males being overly mothered while sick as children.
Real life Examples:
I have a stuffy nose. I should stay inside and watch 2 seasons of Breaking Bad so I don’t infect other people.
Me: (pauses Breaking Bad Season 2) Amore, my throat is scratchy I’m going to eat the last of the ice cream with Nutella and whipped cream.
Sheena: I hate you.
I can’t go to Crossfit today, I don’t want to stress my body while I’m recovering from my sickness. And I can’t watch anymore Breaking Bad without Sheena, she’ll kill me. I’ll buy Gears of War 3.
