Well, it had to happen sooner or later with everyone in the office sneezing, coughing, and all stuffed up with phlegm: I think I’m sick.
Right now, I feel like my throat is trying to close itself off. It isn’t a fun feeling. Other than that, I feel okay, but when I swallow, I feel like my saliva is made of small knives pushing open my upper throat. Not a fun feeling in any way. Hopefully, it is short lived.
How do I know it is a cold and not something else? I haven’t been singing loudly, nor eating anything salty. I have been taking in lots of fluids.
I hope I don’t come down with any of the things that have been going around the office though. I’m a big baby when I am sick, I’ll admit it. And being sick plus trying my best to move all kinds of boxes and furniture this weekend don’t really go together well.
Add to that the fact that I am out of sick days for this year, and no matter how you break it down, I can’t be sick.
