Hello, Miss?

I feel so crappy. I started coming down with a cold yesterday morning, and by evening, I was laid up on the couch, which is where I’ve been since.

It sucks. My body aches, my head aches, my back aches, and my throat is killing me. I’m always thirsty, so I drink a lot of water, which makes me have to pee constantly. I’m always too hot or too cold, usually both at the same time. Because of that, I constantly have a heavy blanket over me, which is part of the reason I get too hot. I sweat all the time. I woke up several times last night and every time, my t-shirt was soaked with sweat, which, of course, made me cold.

The worst part? I went to the dentist this morning to have a loose filling replaced, and I have to go again tomorrow to have my teeth cleaned.

A lot of people keep saying that it’s pre-wedding stress and that I need to heal up before we go to Hawaii. Too true. Really, though, I’d much rather be sick now than in two weeks.

  1. Interesting note: both Emily and I have come down with colds this week, and are struggling through them. You’re right though: being sick in Hawaii would suck.

    That’s rough. When I’m sick I still have to pretend to be genki for my students, unless I’m contagious (in which case I have to stay home if it’s test season [it’s ALWAYS test season]).

    Have fun in Hawaii; wish I could be there. 🙁 Stupid job! The kicker is that midterms, the time I could actually take a break, start right AFTER your wedding (17th).

  3. Sorry you’re feeling crappy. Hope you get to feeling better soon!

  4. Thanks everyone!

    Oh, I forgot to mention, bonus points to anyone who understands what the title of this post refers to.

  5. Ok Thomas I give up. I don’t know the reference in the title of your post. I have been racking my brain and try to figure it out. What does it mean?

  6. Who the hell is that at your desk? I think he’s stealing something!
