President Washington, The Dollop has shown, was a badass. Sick days–pishposh!
Turns out that he was even more of a badass–and even sicker.
The evidence, thanks to Ancestry.com:
12 years, dangerously sick 7 times, twice with 2 diseases at the same time.
In the 18th century, when bleeding was a cure-all, and tuberculosis, to quote the minor prophet Crazy Ralph, “It’s got a death curse!”…
George had tuberculosis TWICE. And just, apparently, shook that shit off while Getting Things Done.
Ye gods and little fishes. Verily, I am impressed.
