Well, Iâ€™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 Iâ€™ve been running a fever for the past 5 days. Today, I woke up with no damn voice. I canâ€™t talk much at all. Iâ€™ve been coughing like hell all damn day. Itâ€™s horrible. I hate it. My throat hurts something awful. Itâ€™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, Iâ€™ve been eating ice cream and drinking water like Iâ€™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 canâ€™t sleep a night all the way through because of all the water Iâ€™m drinking making me pee. Arg! I hope to whatever God there might be that I donâ€™t feel this bad tomorrow. The question is: How do you call in sick if you canâ€™t talk?
