I woke up sick. I went back to bed. I woke up feeling even more sick. I went back to bed again. I woke up running for the bathroom and stayed up, never straying more than a few yards from the bathroom, the whole day. So much for the climbing comp today… I called my buddy at the climbing gym and asked her to set aside a t-shirt for me (which she had already done), and told her I was sick and wouldn’t be climbing today. Frustrated is a mild word for what I’m feeling…besides incredibly ill. I just ate some solid food – Yakitori rice at 1900 hrs. We’ll see how I fare. I don’t know if I’m sick due to the influenza shot that I got on Tuesday, or perhaps a withdrawal symptom of discontinuing the antifungal (which should be washing almost completely out of my system today-ish), or a different brand of a medication I got refilled at the pharmacy the other day that I took for the first time today… I just don’t know. All I know is that this is bad timing. That seems to be the story of my life, but I’ve enjoyed a day of being sick in bed and the screaming meanies, so what’s there to complain about? My spouse came out to my mom’s house where I’m staying and brought me a drink. That was kind. The conversation was good, too, given that I’m not a television-watcher. I studied some Latin and wrote some more in preparation for some short stories or a novel, or whatever else my writerly self ends up cranking out. I’m glad that it’s General Conference weekend so that there isn’t a formal church service tomorrow that I might feel inclined to go to. I need to rest and do my bills tomorrow. Bills, for sure! And rest is a no-brainer!
Content Rating PG, for the most part
I try to keep the content of my posts in the PG range (meaning that maybe your 13-year-old should not read it... Just kidding!) - you know, something I could get away with tastefully in the town square without getting lynched, tarred-and-feathered, or hung (and something my mother would NOT wash my mouth out with soap for). As far as what age you have to be to understand some of the subtleties of my humor in writing and/or speaking, well... That may vary. A lot.
