You've Got Swine Flu

I thought I had a dream that two of my friends woke me up in the middle of the night to tell me I had swine flu.
"Brent, you have swine flu," one of them told me.
"What?" I asked in a daze.
"Yeah, he looks pretty bad," the other said. "It definitely looks like swine flu."
"You should call work tomorrow and tell them you have to go to the hospital," the first continued.
At this point I thought "This dream doesn't make any sense. Why would they be the ones telling me I had swine flu? Why wouldn't it be a doctor?"
Eventually I realized that this wasn't a dream; they were actually in my room, and they were drunkenly trying to convince me to stay up drinking with them and call in sick to work the next day.
