Nausea paused, glancing back at the sleeping man. “I didn’t actually wait up all night for it, though, I just kinda showed up in the morning.

“Yeah, this is pretty boring,” said Headache. “Wanna split?”


The man slept alone in his room for a little while, and then a conversation came through his window:

“Well, if it isn’t our ol’ buddy Bodily Aches!”

“Hey, what are you fellas up to?”

“Not much, just out on the town.”

“Hey, you wanna go to the bar and find someone to have us over for breakfast?”


“Ha ha, all right!”

The conversation moved away, becoming indistinct except for some laughter.

The next morning, the man woke up looking happy (and bedheaded). “Whew! I feel better!” he said.

The man leaned toward his computer, wincing in pain and sickness.

“Man, I’m diggin’ this noisy music!” said Headache. “What is it?”

The man walked unsteadily to his bedroom. “I think I’m just going to go to bed,” he said.

“What?!” said Headache. “It’s early!”

As the man huddled under his covers, groaning, Nausea said, “Okay, well, we’ll see you tomorrow!” The man fell asleep and Nausea turned to Headache. “Ha ha, oh man, so one time I’m at this guy’s house, right, when he wakes up…”

Colin’s sat up in bed, holding his stomach. “Ugh, I don’t feel so good,” he said. “Maybe I should call in sick…” Nausea, sitting on the sheets, smiled. Colin started to get out of bed. “Well, maybe I’ll feel better with some food in me…” Suddenly he could feel he was about to vomit. He ran for the door with Nausea holding onto him, then threw up in the doorway as Nausea did a happy little dance.

“Ha, ha, WHAM! Just like that! it was only like two steps from his bed to the door, but it just hit him so fast!” Headache and Nausea both laughed as Nausea finished his story.

True story!

Headache and Nausea page 1


A short, amorphous blob with arms, legs, & face walks down a sidewalk and suddenly waves.
“Headache, how’s it going?” it says.
“All right, Nausea,” responds a short, spiky being coming the opposite way, “What’s shakin’?”
“Not much, just – oh, hey, I haven’t seen that guy in a while – let’s go say hi!”
The two run up a set of front steps behind a man with a tote bag entering an apartment building.
“Buddy! How are ya!” exclaims Nausea.
The man turns in alarm to see Headache & Nausea standing in the doorway. “Uh…busy,” he says.
“Cool!” says Nausea
They follow as he walks away.
“We thought we’d just drop by, catch up, rock out, y’know?” Headache says.
“Eaten anything interesting lately?” Nausea asks as the man sits down at a TV tray, starting to look ill.
“Guys,” he says, looking stressed, “I’ve got a lot of stuff to do, and I can’t do it with you here.”
Headache & Nausea are totally unfazed. “Aw, you can take a break!” says Nausea. “How often do we see each other?”
