Today, I called in sick (sms-ed actually). I have a feeling I caught the bug when I went to buy headscarves the other day and the shop attendant was having the snifles. The bug could have travelled to headscarves -----> my hands -----> my face -----> my nostrils -----> my sinuses. Eeeew! I hate the watery smuck. Got to prepare my armaments: loads of tissue, lots of water, Logicin day and night tabs. And books to read and re-read - my dependables - my rescuers out of a day of fuzziness and tissue overload. Being sick for a day (I hope just one day) is one of abandonment - of forgetting the demands of everyday living and those endless compromises.
