My Roommate's Wearing Jean Short Shorts Press

No really, my roommate is wearing jean cut-off short shorts. And my roommate is a dude.

Sad thing:
My brother calls me Typhoid Mary because of my cough. I'm almost better, though:

Mary Mallon (September 23, 1869 – November 11, 1938), also known as Typhoid Mary, was the first person in the United States to be identified as a healthy carrier of typhoid fever. Over the course of her career as a cook, she infected 47 people, three of whom died from the disease. Her fame is in part due to her vehement denial of her own role in causing the disease, together with her refusal to cease working as a cook. She was forcibly quarantined twice by public health authorities and died in quarantine.
