I went home from work early last Wednesday with the nastiest cold.
It started last Sunday and progressively got worse.
By Wednesday I couldn't take it anymore.
I told HR I was taking Thursday and Friday off and went home.
My head was pounding.
My ears were plugged up and throwing off my equilibrium.
My nose was runny.
I had laryngitis.
To cap it all off, I woke up Thursday morning with Pink Eye.
I dragged my sorry self to the walk-in clinic to get a prescription for eye drops.
Came home and vegged on the couch.
Puppy insisted on coming by and checking on me every hour or so.
You all right Mummy?
I kiss you and make it better!
I'm on the mend, but still not feeling 100%.
My voice is still rough.
I'm told it sounds sexy.
It doesn't feel sexy.
And if you come near me, I'll give you my cold!
Did I mention I'm still a little cranky?
