Homesick means that you are sick for your home, that you miss it. But (I think) that it can also refer to that feeling you get when you are ill. You know the one – where you just wish you could revert back to being a kid again…lying in bed, eating your mom’s matzah ball soup and binge watching movies.

It’s not an I’m-on-the-other-side-of-the-world thing, so much as it’s an I-want-my-mommy-to-take-care-of-me thing. Even just a hug from your parents seems to melt away the icky feelings of whatever you are suffering from.

Alas, part of the joys of being a grown up means that you must take care of yourself. I guess sitting on your own couch in your pajamas and eating restaurant bought soup (brought over by a good friend) is the next best option. And that’s not so bad.
