Clouds, silver linings, and other such things

“Every cloud has a silver lining”

My cloud is the cold I picked up yesterday. I always get hit hard by this kind of thing. I woke up this morning and my jaw ached, my eyes hurt, the neck and back were painful, I’m creating more snot than the snottiest of two year olds, I feel like I have needles in my throat making swallowing painful and to top it all my hearing is fucked too. Just great. I hate feeling this way. I know when it is coming and there is very little I can do to stop it. I just have to accept that I’m a human snot-factory and manage as best as I can.

The silver lining for this cloud? No work today for Al. I called in sick, because unlike some people I recognise that me being in work is likely to cause others to catch what I have and I would rather not be the cause of other’s missing work. I’m going to stay at home, drink lots of fluids, and pig out on whatever food I can find in the house. Sounds like a plan to me. Hopefully I can shake this thing sooner rather than later. I would hate to waste a weekend feeling like shit. That is not my idea of fun. I don’t mind missing work because of it, but if this cold screws up my weekend I’ll be seriously pissed.

I accept your best wishes for a speedy recovery. Thanks.
