Home Life

5 days

It’s been a long time since I have been this sick this long (Europe 1998 comes to mind). This morning I was treated to 5 trips to the porcelain god. I finally decided it was high time to call in the family. My step-mom is coming to get me and then take me to the doctor. I’m going to have her take me up by her house, that way if I need to, I can crash up there at a relative’s place. I really don’t know what I have other than the flu. I’m hoping for a better diagnosis from the doctor.

The worst part is that I’m always thirsty so I have been drinking water and Gatorade to keep hydrated. I also have had a headache for 5 days that resists everything from Advil to Tylenol PM and Ny- and Day- Quil. You know you have problems when Nyquil doesn’t make you sleep.

Oh yes, I intend to write a letter to the City Fathers seeking a leaf blower ban. Some nut has been outside my window for THREE DAYS for THREE HOURS at a time. I want to kill him.

Wait, I just thought of something worse – I’ve discovered I have a LOT of grey facial hair. I was shocked when I looked in the mirror. It looks like I have crumbs in my 3 day wiskers, but alas, they are grey. **sigh**
