But If I Die, It Means I’ve Misjudged The Situation, And You Have My Blessing To Then Feel A LITTLE Panicky

March 4, 2020

As a follow-up to yesterday, I just want to assure everyone that I’m fine and feeling much better today.  Please don’t buy into any epidemic panics.

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.'”

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

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.
