Last week I felt like every muscle in my body was complaining as though
So I've just been sleeping and reading a lot and taking so much medicine. Benadryl and guiafenesin and aspirin or ibuprofen plus the usual daily six pack (not beer, for God's sake.) And I would have an English muffin (which I fork-split) just because I thought my stomach could not bear the chemical assault, but then I would feel like I was going to lose that, small wonder the chemical stew in there. And my mind feels fine, but is really racing, more than usual. I think the pressure from the sinuses causes this. I offer myself as test subject. And today Fran wanted to do secret shopping for the kiddos and I wanted so much to go along and look at toys and play with the Fisher-Price pianos and stuff. So we go Panera and Toys r us and she swings through the ATM lane which is half way back to my house and I said, maybe you should take me home cuz I don't feel so good. I get out of her car and I STAGGERED. You know how people always use that word and really what does it mean? I staggered over and leaned on a tree then staggered to the porch and leaned on the door and got the door open and leaned on the wall and slowly staggered up the six stairs. I am sure the neighbors think I had a three martini lunch.
What is being "sick"? It doesn't hurt. It's just like weirdness and a different feeling in every cell. I don't even have a fever. And they say 'that song is sick' and it could mean it is great or horrible. "You sick bastard!" is definitely negative but frequently said with a laugh. Well, it's a good reason to rest up and slack off and make people go buy you popsicles. And I am almost finished with a little mystery book that popped out of the bookcase at me that was published in 1968 and is actually pretty good. There's a right moment for everything. So, back to my book. I'll be fine tomorrow. Which is what I thought last night.
I was dabbling with the Kindle last night or afternoon, it is all a blur to me, and I was reading my own book, which I do all the time, and I noticed I use the word GOT an awful lot.
