Warning – Sick content inside!
Farewell party last Friday, pity party this week! I can hear people socialising on their balconies or heading to and from parties, social events, town – wherever. And I have to admit to experiencing a moment of woe is me..
1. I’m not used to being at home on a Friday night lol My best friend did offer to come bring me supplies and keep me company but to be honest, company is something I don’t have the mental wherewithal or energy to be, so why ruin her Friday evening?
2. I cannot bear to be sick. It pisses me off mightily! I am sure – on the odd occasion when some lurgy does knock me down – that I get man flu! I want to die.. I am inconsolable. Grumpy, mean, nasty and plain horrid. (Just ask that.. person .. who was posting comments on my last entry .. they think I am all that .. and more) *grin*
My personal preference when sick is to push thru’ it. Ignore it, it’ll go away sort of thing .. I tried that by going to work Weds and Thurs even tho I felt ever so slightly less than optimal. And I woke this morning barely able to function.. So yeah, working thru it worked a treat alright *snort*
Determined not to be one of those “oh yeah riiiiiight she’s sick” Friday morning phone calls, I decided to take my germy self off to work.. Only to be hounded from my office and sent home within minutes of making my first phone call.
Everyone kept asking where the pre-pubescent boy was. My voice is a tad hoarse and crackly. And my froat hurts .. *whiny tone*
One of the worst things about man flu is it does seem to impair your ability to do anything except whine and feel pathetic!?
Not one to be told what to do, I did go back to the office briefly to attend one meeting and everyone kept a more-than-is-necessary-rude-bastards distance from me then abused me til I came home again.
So much for keeping busy there.
To be fair, it did wipe me out totally making two trips to work, but damnitall I don’t like me when I am sick, I sure as hell don’t wanna keep me company!!
And even less fair, in amid all this woefulness? It’s a holiday weekend here, so we have 3 days ahead of us and the weather is promising to be spectacular..
I had grand plans for a dinner party tomorrow.. Brunch out with friends on Sunday. Was invited to a BBQ on Sunday evening and to have Fish and Chips with another friend at the beach on Monday ..
Instead I have unearthed the stash of tissues (kleenex, whatever you call it) and will be spending my weekend watching anything mindless on telly that I can, to stop me from driving me crazy with frustration and boredom.
OMG I’m channelling the idiot!! Lucky for me I don’t have a wife here to supervise me .. or a cat or son that can tattle on me while I get the hell better 😉
So, why am I whining about being sick? Do I need a reason? Man flu remember! Sheesh ..
Maybe this post can act as a warning .. if I can’t do anything of the things I’d planned over the weekend I may just spam WordPress with yet more inane ramblings of stuff you never knew you needed to know!
I’ve stolen an idea from someone who’s blog has had me in stitches the last few posts.. so if I have the energy we may all be on the cusp of some rather tragic postings from my past 😉
For now tho, this grumpy old baggage is going to reply to a few more texts from friends asking where the hell I am hiding then I’m heading to bed. 10pm Friday .. omg lol
