definitely the blues... and the flu

So okay, I don't really have the blues. But methinks I do have the flu. Or at least - flu like symptoms. Cough. Sniffle. Low grade fevery sigh. Hit last nite; went away some this morning; hit again with a vengeance by 1 PM. And now I'm in sweats, mostly just lying on the couch feeling fluish and wishing someone (husband maybe?) would make me some tomato soup with crackers, some more hot tea, and make "there there" sounds til I recovered. Also wondering if it's bad enough to waste a sick day tomorrow and call a sub, which is - unless you are truly incapacitated or the mother of a sick kid - always, always more trouble than it's worth. Always. Really.

Okay, so that's all you're getting from me today. My skin hurts. I'm headed back to the couch. Tea. More of Sweet Far Thing. And let's see how guilty those ungraded papers in my bag make me feel. Or the fact that I still haven't planned my costume for mandatory Super Hero pep rally. (pink cheeks Ranger? Super Cougher? Zena, Phlegm Princess? Buffy the Fever Slayer?... okay enough. Not even amusing myself at this point, but other suggestions are heartily welcome.)

Til next time...

I vote for Zena, Phlegm Princess (that REALLY made me laugh!). Hope you're feeling better.
(I also vote for the sick day).
