damn guilty conscience

bah. Whine Imminent. Prepare yourselves

i'm sick; this sucks. sore throat, achey, generally poopalicious all 'round. stayed home from work yesterday ('cuz as much fun as infecting the office might be...) and should be home today, but too much to do. that sucks. you're supposed to stay home when you're sick. i remember in grade school not being allowed to stay home when i was sick and all the time thinking, "I'm sick and should be home." now i think, "I'm sick home and should be at work." fricking puritanical work ethic. ¡you suck! what's the point of having a free sick day at home and not enjoying it? i never had this problem in college - ¡i skipped class for bloody reruns, for making dandelion chains on the quad! when did i develop this work ethic?! SUCK!

come closer, i'll sneeze on you, ¡just test me!

Current Mood: sick sick
Current Music: drug cocktails FTW

I dragged myself to work Monday and Tuesday, infecting the office quite thoroughly. Despite having masses of work that need to get done, I just couldn't make myself go today. I feel somewhat weak for having been brought down by a stupid cold-thing, but I don't think I could have managed to drive today. And without my usual early-on day-off to sleep and eat, I'm not getting any better.

Now I worry that even with the day off, and sleeping in, I'm not going to get much better because I'm so stressed about not being at work and getting all the tons of things I need to get done, done!

My general rule of thumb has become: If I feel guilty for staying home, I am actually sick.

When I am just skiving off, I call in with a VERY sincere Sick Voice, and then proceed to go, "WOO HOO!" and head off to the mountains/beach/concert/drinking binge with a clear conscience.

When I am actually sick, I feel guilty. Go figure.
