Sick as a Dog...
Ya’ll – I have been soooo sick the past couple of days. I can’t remember the last time I was so miserable. I’m so congested and phlegmy that when I talk I sound like I’m underwater and very far away. And since my voice is rather raspy and sandpapery to begin with, I probably sound like Ursula the Sea Witch. I’m such a poor, unfortunate soul.
Friday at work was torture, a mental seesaw with saving-sick-leave on one side and getting-the-hell-out-there-and-straight-into-bed on the other. Frankly, I’m probably lucky I made it home in the afternoon. When I get the flu, one of my classic symptoms is forgetting to breathe, resulting in fainting episodes a la Marie Osmond. If only I had a hot ball-room stud like Jonathan Roberts standing behind me to catch me. I had a bad experience back in college involving a bad flu, my car, and the interstate which I am in no hurry to duplicate.
Anyway, all of this is an excuse for my lack of posting. I just haven’t felt up to it. Hopefully, in the next days, I’ll be able to think of other things besides my next dosage.
