I woke up feeling like crap. Fortunately the kids seemed okay, despite having some of the same symptoms – like the ear-shattering cough, for instance.
After I got them off to child care, I called in sick then went back to bed and slept for four hours. I woke up and tried to nibble on some lunch, and looked at the appalling options that daytime TV provided (lawn bowls, Heartbeat, two old movies, Oprah or WeatherWatch). I opted for a tape of Tuesday’s episode of The Bill.
Then I spent most of the rest of the day in bed, only getting up occasionally to embark on a comparison test of Strepsils, Soothers and Vapo-Drops.
