How to add insult to injury, Sarah-style.

1)Catch a very nasty cold/strep throat/flu thing that has you bedridden for days

2)Do that sexy thing where you keep a bit of tissue stuffed up that one nostril that WILL NOT STOP DRIPPING FOR THE LOVE OF SWEET JESUS.

3)Attempt to drink a glass of water, and it is very important that you FAIL to realize that the tissue stuffed in your nostril is now soaked with water. If you have been blowing your nose every 2 minutes for the past 2 days, then this will probably numb any wet sensation you may have been able to percieve, had you been in good health.

4) Immediately after sipping the water, sniff violently so that the now soaked piece of tissue becomes logged in your nasal cavity and all of the water that was in it gets squeezed backwards through your nose and down your throat.

5)Commence wailing.


I am better now, I am happy to say having gotten my temp down to a respectable 99.7 but it has been a rough few days (as noted above). I hope to be my usual, blogging self in the very near future.


Oh, and as much as it rules living with the person you love, it does NOT rule sharing that person's germs especially when they were really sick last week and you said a silent prayer that you would not catch it that OBVIOUSLY went unanswered. Adam, if I ever get off the couch, be afraid.

I cried a little for you. You poor thing! Sounds like you have what is hitting everyone in the US right now... and as a fixture at my urgent care hospital job, I imagine I will be in your shoes soon, love.

Hope you feel fabulous soon.

I now work in a preschool. Commence germ warfare. EVERYONE has the flu right now. I, however, went to see Sean Paul with Emily last night. I shook my bon-bon, drove a lot, and went to bed VERY late. Now, my immune system is paying for it. I feel an illness coming on. I hope it ain't what everyone else at work has. Because it isn't pretty.
Feel better!
