The Big Bad Flu

I spent all weekend lying on the couch under my blanket. One of my classmates came down with the flu at the same time as me, right after our teaching experience on Monday. At one point her temperature hit 103. I was feverish for days, but I don't own a thermometer. Note to self...

We're blaming another classmate, who also got sick but then flew off the Europe so she's not here to defend herself. Of course, there is all that talk on the news lately about how bad the flu is right now. Several of the staff in my office are out sick. Wash your hands and get lots of rest, folks!

Naturally, this little business with the flu has set me back with my school work. I normally do most, if not all, of my work on the weekends. It's also got me a little out of sorts with my work work as well. I'm having a lot of trouble getting out of bed in the morning, and my ability to concentrate isn't up to par.

My mother always insists that what I eat affects my health (radical thought!), so I tried to eat a vegetable for dinner tonight. I found some frozen peas in the freezer and managed to chip some off the block of ice. After a few minutes in the microwave they looked appetizing but tasted like nothing. Blah blah blah. No wonder I eat so poorly. I guess it's back to my fruit and vegetable-free diet.

I'd best turn off this machine and get some sleep. And maybe buy some vitamins when I'm shopping for a thermometer.

Add some butter to the peas while in the 'wave and salt and pepper to them before you eat them. I have the same symptoms about getting out of bed and staying concentrated on something. But my flu is call 'Old Age.' Go a pill for that? Besides Viagra?

You should try some tuna and noodle with your peas. Although that would force you to boil water... dangerously close to cooking.

I think I may have a flu or bug--stomach variety, fevers and chills.
