In Sickness and in Health

The phrase "In Sickness and in Health" has a nice ring to it, but it doesn't quite make sense.  How can someone simultaneously be sick and healthy?  Calling in sick to work to go skiing (I don't have work to call in sick to, unfortunately) strikes me as one way.  As far as other people are concerned, I'm sick.  Unless the other people in question are in my car.  But it's hard for me to imagine feeling healthier than I do when I'm making turns.

So right now I'm putting out feelers to see if anyone who's less unemployed than I am wants to set a bad example.
