4. Perhaps your eyes aren't closed...
And you're just hallucinating that they are?

7. 102 is borderline dangerous in an adult....
Take aspirin or tylenol to bring it down and eat popsickles and HYDRATE yourself. If it doesn't go down..get to an emergency room..anything over 101 is not good.

9. don't you worry...
I have orange juice out the yin yang...You're so sweet to worry...But there's no way I'm going to the emergency room in this freeper town. Who knows what those neo con doctors are just waiting to do to me. I have this yellow dog dem shirt on...they might just let me die.

10. Orange juice is acidic and might cause diarrhea and make you lose more
fluids. Try grape juice, water, soft drinks and iced tea....AND BRING THAT FEVER DOWN OR GO TO THE HOSPITAL!!!

8. <Shh....>
Let Duckie sleep.

Then we can party.

(Anyone bring the marshmallows to roast over the hot-head?)

But it's true. Take care of yourself. It's dangerous to have a temperature that high. I've been there. Done that. Was stupid enough to go to work.

PLEASE take care of yourself. Get into bed, cover yourself up and try to get some sleep.

11. If you are hallucinating it is a bad sign
If you cannot walk to the bath room without falling down, that is also a bad sign. You definitely need to get that fever down soon. I hope that you have someone around that can check on you and make sure you are alright. If you are alone and get worse temperature wise or mental wise get to the ER or even call 911 if the hospital isn't like next door. I hope you feel better.

13. Did your neighbor's dog tell you about the email Superman sent you?
Just wondering, since your brain is affected.

15. I have a question.
As nearly as I can tell the concept of imaginary time runs at a 90-degree angle to the time we usually experience. Is that close to right? And also, what the hell does that MEAN?!

Fever down to 101.1. I went to sleep and sweated...then I had to go get something to eat, so now it's back up to 101. Thanks for caring guys!
