I guess the germs heard me talking about them, and they didn’t like it. I had a garden hose nose yesterday, and today I’ve got the throat aches. What is the deal?! I went into Sunny’s office yesterday and said, “I think I’m getting sick again.” She said, “No, don’t do that!” I said, “I know! It’s been awhile since I’ve been sick.” She said, “No, it hasn’t.” It’s been about 6 weeks. That feels like a lot to me since I’ve had one illness after another since I started working here. I guess it’s the same thing that teachers go through when they start teaching. There’s always a lot of advice that comes with each illness.
“You should take vitamins.”
“Are you getting enough sleep?”
“Try changing the air filters in your house.”
“Well, you probably don’t have a cold. What you have is allergies. Even people that don’t have allergies have allergies right now.”
I prefer the take-it-as-it-comes approach. Sickness is part of life. I feel like the effort of getting through it is far less than the effort that most people exert to avoid it. But that doesn’t mean I won’t whine. I will always whine. Waaahhh.
