Helpful Hint #2

Wednesday, August 27, 2008
The easiest way to be sent home from work is to get sick in the office.

Thankfully I made it to the ladies (which is only 2 doors down from our office) in time. It was still embarassing to tell my boss that I had just been ill and was heading home but at least it didn't happen during a meeting in her office. I've been fighting something on and off since Monday when we had our "company" wide BBQ (no I do not think I'm one of the latest cases of listeriosis). It's just been a mild tummy upset now and then so I didn't think too much about it until, suddenly, as I sat down at my desk after a meeting, my insides decided to re-enact the Krakatoa eruption. Thank goodness I started running last week or I doubt I would have made it. It's mostly passed now and I'm left with one whopper of a headache. As such, you'll have to excuse me my lovely blogging buddies but I will likely be indisposed until tomorrow...

Last Monday it happened to me in the swimming pool - had 1000 m done and all of a sudden - had to get the heck outta there FAST. Luckily, like you, I made it. Took the afternoon off of work and kept bucket by my bed; next morning was right as rain, so hope same is true for you Karen :-)

Get better quickly - but until you do, baby yourself and rest!

My bosses were of no mercy - I've even had them set a vaporizer on my desk while I tried to work with bronchitis.
