weekend edition 06

Strep throat and the flu have been wreaking havoc on the school, and no one is safe.

I carry two hand sanitizers (sweater pocket and pants pocket) and open doors with a paper towel. I give no high fives and lean against no railings. But still, I woke up with a tickle in my throat and watery eyes. Noooooooooooo! I have plans for the weekend, but I'm seriously considering wrapping myself in a blanket and downing a gallon or two of wonton soup. Until then, I'm not going down without a fight - I've been hydrating and eating oranges nonstop for the past six hours. Wish me luck. Or, barring luck, a quick recovery.


Have a lovely weekend, and take your Vitamin C!
