My partners, male family, friend's menfolk, time & time again the world stops when blokes have a cold. Many have been heard to utter "I'm dying", as they reach for they tissues to once again blow their nose like a trumpet sounding a death note.
I know, everybody knows someone who we've decided is "faking", and I'm not saying we're all wrong (hell, some of you may have met my ex husband, and you're definitely right in his case). But let me present you with an alternative.
