Sniffles McSniffleson

I'm sick :( I have an ear infection and a sinus infection to accompany it. I haven't had an ear infection since I was about 10 years old. Yesterday at work, after suffering through a busy day, I informed the higher ups that I would be leaving early to see an Urgent Care doctor and get some medicine. One of them replied, " Well you sound sick but you don't really look sick." I guess I take that as a compliment and an insult for two reasons:

1. Just because I'm sick does not mean I can't put on my best face and look presentable. When I got ready that morning I made it a point to not wallow too much in the sickness and put on some damn mascara. Any lady would.

2. How does "sick" look? Just because I didn't schlep into the office and hype up the dramatics with loud nose blowing and complaining doesn't mean I'm not sick. I felt terrible but managed to pull together a cute outfit and brave the commute to get there. Give me some credit!

You and half of Washington have this bug. I got the ear infection part and walked around lopsided for a week, feeling dizzy all of the time. Get well soon.

i had no idea the bug was going around so quickly. a couple of people in my office are sick as well.


mappy - pho is just glorified ramen!! why pay for a bowl of pho when i can break open ramen for 10 cents ;) just kidding. actually the boy is a big fan of pho and we go to this great place in annandale for it.
