A blessing and a curse.
I was home sick today due to an incredibly sore throat combined with a cough and the fact that I wasn’t really doing much at school anyways. It’s been quite nice to relax.
Here’s what I did: woke up late, watched four episodes of The Hills, drank gingerale, had soft-boiled eggs, went on the computer, had fruit salad, wrote a couple notes, didn’t publish them, had a spoonful of honey, tweeted the day away, downloaded firefox, got overwhelmed, had a text war, never got out of my scrubs aka pjs.
Lovely. What do I plan to do the rest of the night? Throw in some firefox addons, watch a movie, read a book, eat food, sleep. So nice playing hooky.
What works for a sore throat? Lots of vitamin C, echinacea, honey, cough drops, apparently gingerale, salt water gargle, and fisherman’s friends. But I can’t bring myself to eat any ff just yet. They taste like crap.
So the blessing part of being sick: sleeping in and chillin.
The curse part: you aren’t allowed to go to the premier of Star Trek with your friends since you were too sick for school. drats ma.
Ah well, lonliness is okay with me.
