Fail Blog Entry

I'm sure you all recall me whining about being sick last weekend.  I cancelled almost all my fun plans, and then got better in time to show up at work on Monday. *sigh*  But you know, things happen.  There was no sense in being bitter.

Until I got sick again this weekend.  (Some kind of virus, I think.)  Now I'm bitter.  Getting sick every weekend is not cool.

And although I complained about getting well just in time to go back to work last week, feeling that it was a rather cruel joke by Mother Nature, I do wish I had gotten well that quickly this time.  I am getting bored, peoples.  I have a very active and curious mind.  Lying on the couch watching TV, dozing, and sweating is staring to wear pretty thin.

I did try to go to work this morning.  The fever was gone.  I got myself up, showered, groomed and dressed.  I was feeling a mite shaky, so I called a cab instead of hiking off to the bus stop. After being in the car for a few minutes, I started feeling shakier.  I decided to tough it out.  Halfway there I felt worse. My pulse was hammering and I wanted to lie down.  I told myself it would pass.  Three quarters of the way there, I asked the cabbie to turn around and take me home again.  Work attempt FAIL!  The round trip cost me $28 in cab fare, and some of my dignity.

When I got home I crawled back into my fleecy pj's and fell asleep on the couch for most of the day.

I think I won't try again until Wednesday.

Although fleecy jammies do sound kind of tempting right about now.

I'm sorry you're feeling so poorly again hon. I'll be praying!

I'm so sorry; I know just how you feel. Stay home until you can go out on your own steam.

Thanks guys and gals! A dose of sincere sympathy is the best medicine I could ask for. It's a tonic to my spirits.

I bet the cab driver was pissed off with you even if they did get payed!

Get well soon matie!

Blech. I say stay home until Thursday! Maybe you can trick your body into thinking Saturday is Wednesday and then not get sick again until Monday. :-)

Fortunately the cabbie was a nice, soft-spoken man. He wished me well, and I gave him a good tip.

Jenski, I am too spaced out to understand your complex plan, but perhaps my mind will take it in subconsciously, now that I've read it. ;-)

Oh no! how crappy. It's disappointing to make plans and then have to back out in the middle of carrying them out, even if you do get a day off from work in the process. get well soon.
