Are you sure you want to go to work today?
I've got so much to do.
But you're still all coughy and sneezy and you really should take another day to rest and get to feeling better.
There's some projects that are getting critical and I really have to make sure nothing falls through the cracks.
Well ... I know I can't stop you from going, but just please, know that you can come home whenever you want to.
Well, jeezus, I'm just going to work, it's not like I'm leaving you or anything!
