Elly versus getting sick

I think that it's pretty safe to say that Elly really gets to rack up the martyrdom points when her family gets sick. Always and ever, her lazy husband and whiny children keep her running in circles and exhausting her while never allowing her a moment's peace and never once showing the least bit of gratitude. It's as if they think that she has no higher purpose in life than to drop everything whenever they feel poorly and thus shouldn't be thanked for doing what she was plopped down on the Earth to do.

The neat thing is that she also gets to nail herself to her cross when she gets sick. Since her spoiled, selfish, heartless family will either expect her to work through a horrible, horrible fever because they hate her or do the chores wrong and thus force her to work and work and work to do them the only right way (thereby avoiding Marian materializing out of nowhere and telling her what a fool and failure she is) because they live to make her suffer.

This, I should think, means that she got to rack up bonus martyrdom points during her bout with laryngitis. Not only was her family doing everything exactly the wrong way because they wanted to torment her, she couldn't even tell anyone how they were stabbing her in the heart.
