SO YESTERDAY, I was in the office – a place I was actually looking forward to being this week because
Because of course, that would come first, NAY, BE THE ONLY CONSIDERATION, REALLY! for me this week.
Gyros? Pffft, who cares…I am there for the team…(and if you need me, send a text or something because…eeeeeeyeah…totally at the gyros walk-up…)
Shortly after lunch, I started to develop a headache, which I attributed to
By 2:00, it was becoming all-consuming. I was having a terrible time thinking about anything other than my headache.
About the only thing bothering me more than the headache (which was definitely of the ‘sinus pressure’ variety) was this weird tickling in my throat. Stupid allergies…but I understand honey is some kind of Miracle Cure for allergies, and AS IT JUST SO HAPPENS, baklava has honey in it…(aside: see, this is why I have to keep myself on a short leash most of the time when it comes to Such Things…I could blow throw an astonishing amount of my paycheck on eating out, if I let myself…)
By the time I got home, my throat wasn’t “tickling,” it was “scratching.” Hmmmm…
My alarm went off this morning, and I was starting to think about doing something about that…and then I swallowed.
Apparently, I attempted to swallow a whale in my sleep last night. A whale wearing a sandpaper jacket.
And when I let out this groan of disbelief and anger, I woke up the headache.
Who called his friend, the fever.
Who invited the body ache over.
I mean…really?! REALLY?!
I ended up working from home today…which was probably a good thing, because every time I start trying to move around I get kind of blech.
If I’d gone in, I probably would have needed to leave early.
Like, before lunch.
Which would be a criminal waste of a rather long commute, because I still have a few eateries on my mental checklist of places I’d like to go one last time before I leave the City by the Bay for an undetermined stretch of time.
Not that I could right now anyway…sore throats and eating don’t exactly play nicely together.
I have to say: I do get a lot more done when I work from home.
Even if there isn’t any baklava in the joint.
(Seriously, can you believe this?! I’m going to get a humdinger of a cold/flu thing NOW?! REALLY?!?!)
(But I’ve got news for it: I’m one extremely stubborn little code-jockey over here. I am finishing these last couple things, and I will go into the office tomorrow and Friday, and that’s all there is to it!)
(…but, geez louise…I don’t think I’m going to be feeling like going out to lunch, is the thing…waaaaaah, my life is haaaaaard…!)
