It started last night when I coughed to clear a tickle in my throat. I felt that sharp, almost cold, moment of stinging pain in the chest. By the time I got home I knew I had caught The Crud.
Of all the days to be sick, today was not so bad. No important plans and no chores that can’t be be postponed. I made a makeshift sickbed on my couch with pillows, blankets, my laptop, and book, and here I have stayed.
Hello, Sick Day.
