I don't think that there is anything less fun than having to work when you have a cold. With the possible exception of a colonoscopy. So, I have a cold. I had hoped to avoid it. Everyone that I work with went through a variety of forms of this bug and I seem to be about the last to get it. I had thought it was just allergies, but yesterday it really began to kick my butt. I had the day off, but spent it taking drugs, buying Puffs with lotion, eating chicken soup and napping, with the dogs, on the couch .
With so many cable channels who knew there was so much nothing on during the day? I put my earplugs in and turned on the Weather Channel. Got a good 8 hours last night and hope, through the grace of chemistry that I will be able to make it through till my shift ends at 4:30 today. Speaking of chemistry, I want to thank all the idiots out there that make drugs who have made it so difficult and time consuming to purchase cold medications!! Just when I felt the worst I had to stand in line at the pharmacy counter just so I could show my ID ,get looked up , and sign to say that I am purchasing these pills under legit circumstances!! Did they get a good look at how crappy I looked? They were fortunate that I brushed my teeth before I went it, it was the least I could do.
Now, armed with tissues and drugs in hand, I am off to serve hot java to the masses!
