Do you prefer to be in the driver’s seat or in the co-pilot’s chair, literally and figuratively?

i don’t drink, nor do i like to act like a person who’s been drinking.
What’s something you enjoy that’s literally cheesy, and what’s something you enjoy that’s figuratively cheesy?
i can’t have that much cheese nowadays–makes my tummy sore. but i used to love cheesy things like nachos or mac & cheese or stuff like that. figuratively? hmm. i don’t know if my definition of cheesy is correct.

How ill do you have to feel in order to shut it down for the day?
depends. sometimes i’m lazy and a little sniffle will cause me to want to go home. sometimes i just power through, in order to attend an important meeting or something.
Waves of nausea are washing over you and through you. Do you fight them off, or do you just throw up to get it over with?
ooh, just had to deal with this the other day. part of me wanted to just throw up and get it over with. but i didn’t want to deal with the mess. so i just tried to think of other things to fight them off. i was successful! usually i’m not.
