Sucks to be sick


The tickle in my throat that I was pretending did not exist? Yeah, it's now a full-blown head cold and/or sinus infection complete with hacking cough, 100 sneezes in a row, sinus headache and general feeling of crap. 

I tried to get out of work today, and couldn't. I felt bad, spreading my germs in the tiny conference room, so I dosed myself well with various OTC remedies and did not sneeze or cough once during the deposition. The witness? Yeah, that was another matter. He was coughing and hacking and generally spreading the plague to everyone within breathing distance.

When his depo was over, he said, "Can I leave now? My medicine is wearing off. I have the flu."

Yay.

No good. No good at all.

Feel better, ok?

Hubby & I both got sick while in FLA - I blame it on the screaming baby flight we took to Orlando - I'm sure that plane had more germs than the CDC. Drink a nice hot toddy (tea w/ lemon, local honey & whisky) and I'm sure you'll feel better. If you have a Vietnamese place close by, get a nice big bowl of pho - it works as well as chicken soup...
