Sick 2016

It happened again. I got sick.

I think I got sick back in August too. Twice in a year is pretty bad. Especially considering I didn’t get sick the two years prior.

This time I know exactly why I got sick. I stayed with my parents on Saturday and I didn’t fly out to LA from Dallas until Saturday afternoon. Well my father was sick and so was my sister. My sister was in awful shape. She was in bed from the time I got home on Friday until I left on Saturday.

I made it back and was feeling ok. I even went to the office holiday party that night and felt good. Sunday I woke up and was still feeling pretty good, but then around noon I started getting an awful scratching in my throat. It got worse as the day went on. I had been working outside since the morning, and because I drink when I work, that probably didn’t help with the early stages of the sickness.

Either way, I woke up on Monday and felt awful. I checked my work emails. Nothing important had come up, so I took some medicine and fell asleep most of the day. I got real bad. My bones hurt and I was running a fever. I kept taking the medicine, but it didn’t help much. By Tuesday I was running out of medicine, so I went to Target to buy some more. I came home and it was then that I realized I had only been taking cough medicine. I was missing all that sweet pain/fever reducing medicine, which is probably why my pain and fever hadn’t gone away. That was something I completely blamed on my roommate, since they brought that old medicine on Sunday when I was starting to feel sick and asked them to go buy some medicine. You can’t trust anybody these days…

Wednesday wasn’t great, but  it was manageable. Thursday was ok and I was fine by Friday. Although the cough took about another week to finally get over.

Blah, anyway, I always feel better about life once I get over a sickness. It really appreciate life, after I’ve felt like shit for a few days. oh, it also makes me dread getting sick with like a cancer. I imagine going through chemotherapy would feel similar, except maybe with some additional serious nausea.

Sick Again

Those tacos by the house are delicious, but they’re making me sick. It’s going to be hard night again, which sucks because tomorrow is the last day or work for the week. I hope I can make it in time to work tomorrow. Taking the bus is a journey and I need an hour to make that journey. I can’t have any stomach issues for that hour or I’ll be screwed.

===============================================

I realize I haven’t said anything about my job. It hasn’t been too interesting these last couple of weeks. I’ve been inputting data into databases. That’s pretty much all I can say about that. I’ll write about it more when it becomes interesting.

The databases aren’t really important. They’re going to be used as evidence in court against a guy who is trying a tax evasion scheme.

===============================================

McGehee High School is an Arkansas high school, like every high school, has a valedictorian, Kymberly Wimberly (that’s her name, really, don’t laugh). The problem? The valedictorian is a black girl, in a predominately white school. The school hasn’t had a black valedictorian since 1989 (when I was born), so it decided to make a change.

Kymberly will be a co-valedictorian. The other co-val is a white student with a lower GPA.

Why the change? Because naming Kymberly the valedictorian will cause “a big mess“.

Grow up McGehee High School. If people in 1989 can handle it, you have no excuse. Don’t be racist.

Quote of the Day

Lady in car: Oh, shit.

PS. I was crossing the street and she almost hit me. Well, she got close, and I was fine. I knew she wasn’t looking. That’s why I didn’t get ran over, duh.
