>I thought I had beaten the system. Nearly two years floating around in public schools without nearly a sniffle. It had to catch up to me sometime. Though, it’s possible that I’ve just been harboring all kinds of kid-germs and they all came out to play at once- which would explain the head-splitting ache in my skull and the fire-breathing dragon sore throat.
I’ve all but injected Vitamin C, have tried snorting Advil Cold and Sinus to no avail, and have hung my head in misery over a steaming pot of water. I quickly become angry. This is all a ploy- a dirty trick. I’ve been out-smarted by Herculean bacteria. The ones that hide out inside your body like those gross foot-fungal commercials….or Mucinex….shudder…little green booger men sweating and scratching, getting ready to release their fury just as I’m off for Thanksgiving vacation.
All and all, I refuse to let it beat me. I will rejoice. I will be Thankful. I will be armed with Puffs Plus and a humidifier.
