Between you, me and thousands of Muppet fans, my husband is like that when he gets sick, too. I think it's a guy thing. Whatever the case, I loved that Pebble Pox episode and yes, Gobo was over dramatizing quite a bit. My husband kept saying 'Der arme Gobo' (which is German for 'poor Gobo'). I kept saying, 'Not poor Gobo, silly, poor Red, she's the one who has to take care of him'. Hehehe. It is for that reason that I'd rather me be sick than my husband be sick.
