Here is the conversation between my husband (who is sick himself and home with a 2-year-old who was sick but apparently is feeling much better) and I just a few minutes ago:
Phone at my desk rings.
Hubby: (in his most "I am not feeling good" voice possible): Can you cancel you dentist appt. after work today and just come home?
Me: I can try to reschedule. Why? What's wrong?
Hubby: I'm just not feeling good, and I am SOOOOOO tired. Oh, and our son is eating trash.
Me: What?! He is eating trash?
Needless to say the appt. was re-scheduled.
