I thought that maybe--just maybe--I'd escape getting sick this winter. I was a good girl and got my flu shot early!
Since Christmas, everyone's been coming down with the flu and colds. I can't tell you how many of the students at school, professors, and administrators have come down with the "ick." I was feeling pretty good (literally), until Sunday night. All of a sudden, I had a tickle in my throat. By Monday, I knew I was in for it! By Tuesday, I had a raging fever, a sore throat, a hacking cough, and body aches galore.
I feel marginally better today, but I have almost no voice and a persistant, annoying cough!
Why? Why? Just once, couldn't I escape?
