sick and ... sick

No deadlines today and not a lot on my desk, so I took the opportunity to call in sick. It's pretty much head congestion with an intermittent cough, and some body aches (hoping the latter isn't because I caught some flu strain, but rather because I tend to kick compulsively when I'm having trouble sleeping). Thermometer says 97 even, so perhaps not.

I'm trying to figure where I got it ... Erin was sick last week and I visited to take her some pho and softcore pornography, and perhaps I picked up her cooties? Or, hanging out with all of my nieces on Saturday did it (the rule I have with kids is that in any group of about a half-dozen or more, one of them always has a cold or is getting over one).

Today: fluids, staying warm, couch, and movies. Maybe I'll go for a walk later.

Pointless blog post concludes ... now.

Feel better, dude. I can always drop the porn off for you to borrow if you like.

I really really hope that you do not have what I had. I would not wish that on anyone.

Yeesh. It seems like that particular sickness is hitting many, many people right now. Staci has it, or rather is getting over it, but it has persistently hung on for about a week and a half now... Ick.
Hope you feel better soon. Do you have a humidifier? That sometimes helps, in my experience.

Hope you feel better.

From what I know it's not much use to try to figure out where you pick up a cold or flu. People who have them are most contagious right before their symptoms show up. And most are picked up from casual contact that is unavoidable if you want to interact with other humans.

Take care of yourself - I'm into my third week of tiredness and phlegm. I haven't actually felt bad for quite a while, but man is this getting old.

According to my wife (Dr.), it sounds like a fair percentage are going into pneumonia, as well.
