Well, I’ve been horribly ill for the past week or so. I just barely made it to the Halloween party this weekend because I was overheating like hell. I think I’ve been running a fever for the past 5 days. Today, I woke up with no damn voice. I can’t talk much at all. I’ve been coughing like hell all damn day. It’s horrible. I hate it. My throat hurts something awful. It’s been horribly painful for the past 6 days, but today is the worst. Dry and raspy every time I breathe. To ease the pain, I’ve been eating ice cream and drinking water like I’m in a damn desert. The end result is that I end up pissing like a damn racehorse every hour or so. I mean, to add insult to injury, I can’t sleep a night all the way through because of all the water I’m drinking making me pee. Arg! I hope to whatever God there might be that I don’t feel this bad tomorrow. The question is: How do you call in sick if you can’t talk?
