So That Would Definitely Explain It

January 16, 2020

After I posted yesterday, someone reached out to inform me that there’s something like a flu going around that has symptoms similar to food poisoning, but lacking some of the traditional flu-like symptoms.  I haven’t had time to do my own research yet, but I will say that would account for some of the things I’ve been experience over the past few days (primarily a vague sense of fatigue and some achiness).

Mild, Unfortunately, Isn’t The Same As Quick To Pass

January 15, 2020

Me: (A couple of days ago)  Well, if this is food poisoning, all things considered, it’s pretty mild.

Me: (Today) Well, if this is food poisoning, all things considered, it’s pretty mild.

And I Don’t Know If I Was Making Fun Of Myself Or Not

Bad sign:  You inform people that you are not feeling your best today by announcing that you shall be “unconscious-ing” soon.

An even worse sign for me:  After saying such a thing, I actually thought, “Oh, good!  Now I have something to write about when I ‘re-conscious.'”

Zzzzzzzzzzzz

December 6, 2019

Me (this morning):  I’m a little draggy, so I think I’ll go back to bed for a few- Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Me (this afternoon):  I can’t believe I slept so long, so I’d better get some catch up work done before I- Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

I Am Absolutely Kidding About This, I Just Have A Mild Cold, So Any Ghastly Appearance Was A Preexisting Condition

October 30, 2019

The bad news is because I’ve been ill lately I haven’t been able to get the house decorated for Halloween.

The good news is because I’ve been ill lately I look ghastly enough that I won’t need a costume.

Today I’m Not Laughing

October 29, 2019

After posting yesterday, someone (having correctly divined that yesterday’s quote meant that I was indeed sick) recommended that I pack it in and go to bed early.  I laughed at this yesterday because I didn’t feel that bad, I was just have a bit of difficulty focusing.

It Really Would Be

October 25, 2019

Me:  (After dragging around the entire morning.)  Kiddo, I’m not sure that I’m sick today, but I’m going to act as if I am.  I mean I’m going to take care of myself like I would if I was sick, not that I’m going to start going around acting sick.

My son:  Yeah, that would be bad.

A Paraphrased Text Exchange With My Mom

January 17, 2019

Me:  (Updating her how I feel.)  Well, my order of tea, orange juice, soup, ice cream and cold medicine arrived, so I’m good for now.

Mom:  (Having her own issues at the moment.)  So we’re both just livin’ the dream today.

Me:  Absolutely!  When are we going to wake up, do you think?

And She DID Know Because I Was The Second Person Today With That Kind Of Order

January 16, 2019

Person Helping Me With My Groceries:  How are you doing today?

Me:  (Glancing down at my order of tea, orange juice, ice cream, soup, and cold medicine)  Nobody orders all this stuff together if they’re doing well, you know.

If You’ve Never Been There, Good For You

There’s a special level of sick when you’re an adult and a parent, the “watching afternoon television” level.
