The Writer & I were talking about the merits of “sick” days several weeks ago. I told her that I don’t take them often, but when I do it’s usually because I need a day off and my colleagues & I nickname them, “mental health” days.
Today isn’t one of those days.
I hated to do it … calling in on a Friday … but what I had originally thought was allergies isn’t. I refuse to believe it’s the flu because I, like a good teacher, got my flu shot in November.
Now, I hope it’s the flu because there are a lot of nasty viruses floating around my campus and the flu is the least offensive of the bunch.
On the plus side?
Sleeping in rocks!
