dying to go home

yesterday, someone said to me, "have you heard about that stomach bug that's going around?" I said no - and then literally 5 hours later was doubled over in pain with stomach cramps. I had chills last night and was quite achy. I got up this morning feeling pretty much okay, and since I had stuff to do today (including dinner with a woman I just met in the same industry as me) I dragged myself to work.

bad idea.

so now I'm just holding on until I can drag myself home. I'm just hoping I can make it home in time.

man, I hope this isn't like the ring, where now that I've heard about it, I get it, and then if I tell someone else, THEY get it. wouldn't that be nuts? (sorry in advance and let me know if you get it too. we can write the screenplay together. I want to write the scene where the protagonist gets caught in a public restroom with no toilet paper and a stall door that doesn't lock.)

Oh that sucks. I hate it when you wake up and think "hey I'll be ok, it's just work, I sit there, I sit here, what's the difference" and then the ... uh... shit hits the fan. no pun intended. Hope you get all better soon and if I get sick I'm going to be REALLY pissed.

How long do you have to stay P? Can't you leave now?

Oh Patrice, I'm so sorry. That sucks ass. I hate days when you can't take off but are sick so much. You better not have passed this on or bad things will go down.

Hope you make it home in one piece.

Good luck making it through the day and dinner! Hopefully you feel better really soon.

Ewwwww. Hang in there. It's evening now so I hope you made it home okay.

Steph said...

No. fun. At all.

I hope you feel better soon!

I hope you're feeling better! If it helps, today is the first day I'm feeling really decent since the strep/cold/ear infection started and we're supposed to get hit with up to 12 inches of snow this weekend (which means I'll be shoveling)!!!! Have a good weekend!
