A TOOTHPICK AND THE FLU
The flu has been rampant this year and I was fortunate to catch it. On Sunday evening, I felt like I had a scratchy throat and felt like I may be coming down with perhaps a sinus infection or maybe one of my allergies.
When I awoke the next day, to my surprise and dismay, my voice sounded like a man’s. My eyes were swollen, I was coughing and ached all over. I thought, “Oh no. This is Monday, I really need to go to work.”
But, with a head that felt like it was going to burst and a tummy which was rolling and grumbling, I decided I was in no shape to be around anyone.
