I’m home sick today. Miserable is more like it. My daughter asked me if I am going to stay home tomorrow too so she could make me breakfast in bed. I said “no. I’ll probably go to work.” She said “Why? If you don’t feel good, maybe you should stay home.”
Because that’s what grownups do. We go to work when we don’t feel good. We cook when we don’t feel like it. We do a lot of things we really don’t want to do.
Sometimes I hate being a grown up.
Drugs are helpful though. And today I figured out that nasal spray is a gift from God. Here’s the list of drugs that have kept me breathing today:
dayquil, ibuprofen, mucinex D, sudafed, nasal spray, vicks, tylenol, Echinacea, Emergen C.
I have to say the mucinex D and nasal spray are officially my two favorite.
Summer colds are the worst ever. It’s 89 degrees outside and I am shivering with chills. blech.
