Head Cold

I really hate being sick. Not that there are many people out there that enjoy it, but there are some that handle it with a considerable bit more grace than I do. Not that I whine and bitch all the time (like normal) but just that I feel that it is more obvious that I am sick than when other are. Maybe because other people stay home when they feel awful and I don’t see it as much. Not me - I like to spread the love around. It is my belief that if I carry on as if I was fine, then the cold will run it’s course much quicker. I am not aquainted with the concept of sick days. I don’t like to miss out on things, I like to know what’s going on at all times. Even last week when I was away for a couple of days, I had to get a co-worker to keep me in the loop via email. It is for this same reason that I arrive at work early and leave late and seldom take a lunch break. Maybe I just really love what I do - which is definitely true… but who knows. All I hope is that my cold is gone by Friday.
