I ALMOST made it to the end of the year without getting sick. I was merely DAYS away. My friend at work had lost her voice at the beginning of the week and was slowly recovering. I, like the FREAKING genius I am, decided that I absolutely need to have a piece of gum yesterday. Gum, which my sick friend just happened to have in her pocket. Without thinking about it, I took the germ infected gum and chewed the hell out of it.
About 3 hours later…..I felt a little tickle in the back of my throat. It started out as the tickle, and slowly progressed into a little cough, and NOW is a full blown hack my lungs up dry , painful cough. It sucks.
My profession is talking. I am a professional talker. I talk allll day for 8 hours. So being with this cough, talking all day it’s pretty painful. And as I type this, I have about a hour and a half left in my shift and my voice is cracking in and out all over the place. I sound like Vin fucking Diesel.
So I am starting the new decade with a sickness. And I will more then likely not sleep very well tonight because I have the strangest feeling that I will be up all night hacking and coughing (I plan on making a trip to Walgreens on my drive home).
Tonight I am going to Nyquil it the fuck up. And whatever else I need to take to make this crap not progress into anything worse then it already is. THANKFULLY I have a three day weekend. NOT Thankful for the fact that I STILL haven’t cleaned out my dead fridge. *shivers*
I plan on barfing a few times. ———- HAPPY FLIPPIN NEW YEAR! *rolls eyes*
