I was out sick yesterday.

On Wednesday, I had a sore throat all day.  I gave my boss a warning that I’d probably be out on Thursday – usually a sore throat precedes my sinuses doing their “thick as a brick” impression.

It was worse than that.  I slept all but 6 hours Thursday (or 18 hours total).  By the time I figured out that I’m sicker than I thought and took my temperature it was 100.8.  I started pushing fluids at that point.

Today I’m at work with only 99.6, but only because I have important stuff to do and a meeting to attend.  I’m going home sick at noon.

I’m supposed to go see the Blue Man Group tonight.  I have to decide whether or not to suffer through or blow the $80 tickets.

I think I have a cold coming on. I’ve got a sore throat from post-nasal drip, and I can feel my sinuses getting clogged.

Good timing – I’m on vacation next week. I’m supposed to have a flying lesson on Saturday.

To top it all off, our company has a policy that says you need a doctor’s note to be out sick on the day before or after a vacation. So, I’ll have to come in tomorrow regardless of how I feel – who’s going to run to the doctor and pay a $15 co-pay to get a note that says you have a bad cold?
