In which ABWP gets “under the weather”

September 15, 2010 6 comments

So I’ve been a bit under the weather (which is not an excuse for not blogging more, but rather a fact).  Mostly I’ve had this hacking cough that makes me sound like a 50-something male smoker (which, for the record, I am not) but I gamely went into work (because being sick is for sissies).

For the record, I do not get “sick.”  I am occasionally “under the weather.”

And then my boss said something about it being bronchial, which it totally wasn’t because that makes it sound like a proper disease, and I do not get sick.  I denied this vehemently.  But apparently you can take something called colloidal silver which helps loads.

But then I googled it and found this, so I decided not to take it because I don’t want to be blue.

Besides, I wasn’t even sick.  But on my way home I passed a homeless guy who asked everyone for money (as they do). Except when I passed him all he said was “You’ve got Bronchitis, Luv.” Like he felt so sorry for me that he didn’t even want my change, and I would have had a MASSIVE HEAD EXPLOSION!!! except that I was so clogged up my head wouldn’t explode.

And then the next day my boss told me to stop being a martyr and go home, so I did.  Humph.  I think he got annoyed by all the coughing.

But, on the up side, I am now mostly better, back at work, and still not blue.
