* "I won't get [serious disease that's going around] because I got vaccinated last year/I'm the healthiest X in the world/I'm BornLucky/I never get sick/I come from a family line that never gets [disease]/I'm invincible/I have magic"--you ''will'' [[SickEpisode get the illness]], and if it doesn't kill you it will at least make your talents void.
** A variant: "I'm not sick, it's just allergies", or "I'm not seriously ill, it's DefinitelyJustACold"--even if you truly believe this and are not in denial, you probably are sick and it will come back to bite you in the butt.
