Under the weather

Not feeling well. Stomach pain. Something disagreed with me. Whether or not it was the root cause, I’m betting I shouldn’t have eaten so much chocolate yesterday.

Not much sleep overnight. Unsavoury lavatorial activities instead. Called in sick today.

Took kids to school, then stopped past supermarket and got my standard sick food: Sprite and Saos, came back home and slept for two hours.

Wearing trackie dacks and slippers. Heard postie and ran out to mailbox, using car in driveway for cover to avoid being spotted looking so daggy.

Slowly feeling better. Hopefully back to par by the end of the day.

Update 8am Wednesday. Feeling much better today. Back to work, dammit.

Hope you’re feeling betterer now. Nothing like having a sick day off work, with your fave snacks while wearing old daggy clothing. Makes me feel betterer just thinking about doing it.

Ahhhh, yes the sick food. Yours is sprite and saos. Mine is Matzo balls in vegetable broth. I like asking people what their “feeling poorly, on the mend” food is. Interesting.

I just learned from an old schoolmate that he was sick for three days after drinking two cans of Hershey’s chocolate syrup on a bet.

He didn’t add that it was worth it, but he didn’t have to. :)
