Oh my DOG. Was I sick ya’ll or what? Thank you all for your emails and comments of concern. I really haven’t been that sick in a long time. I mean I get kidney infections and colds, and PMS and cramps but DAYUM. I was down for the count, really and truly. No dramatics here this time. I missed work Monday and yesterday, mainly because I really just didn’t have the energy to get out of bed. My antihistamine kept me in a perpetual fog, though I did manage to get out of bed to let the dogs out when (The “dogs”, I can’t believe I have another dog now) they needed to go. My appetite was non-existent but I did force myself to eat something last night and of course I made something easy and terribly bad for me like a Tyson Chicken Patty and the last of the frozen french fries ( I know. Shut up. ). My stomach wasn’t having it though and I spent a couple of hours this morning wretching to the porcelein gods. Even thinking about it now makes me nauseous. I really want a salad and some fresh fruit for dinner tonight. This morning I woke up feeling somewhat human again though and skipped the antihistamine because I’ve got piles of shit backing up at work and I just couldn’t miss another day. I know I’m the boss here on the local level but I answer to the corporate demons in the big city, and if you knew those corporate demons, you’d sympathize.
I also gave my presentation tonight in class. I think I did pretty good and ya’ll, I just have to say that I love my classmates. Over the past few weeks, we’ve each been giving our individual presentations and I’m amazed at how supportive we are of each other. We’re all very close knit and man are my classmates intelligent and interesting! I’ve been in lots of small classes but never felt the bond and support as I do with this group of people. I think maybe it’s that comfortable anonymity we all have. We don’t actually see each other so there’s no judgement on looks, we’re more apt to speak up and share because we can “hide” in the phone. I’m really going to miss them all once the class is over. We’re all promising to keep in touch. I really hope we do.
Well that was a tangient wasn’t it kids? I’ve decided to blame everything on “the infection” for the next couple of weeks. Speaking of which. What the fuck? We’re all still baffled on how a simple little “bug” morphed into a damn “raging infection” that was rapidly spreading. So, I’m going to milk it for everything it’s worth. Think everyone will buy it? It’s worth a try right?
