It caught me

Some fuzziness has latched itself to mi cabeza. I pretended not to notice its coming when I tripped over a single step in the garage, without lifting my feet, to land hard on my knees. (Equilibrium gone!) Or the random achiness. That should have been a clue.

I also pretended not to see it when I left for work yesterday morning and avoided the mirror. However there is no avoiding the helpful mirror voiced by people you meet throughout the day, who took one look at me and said, "You look sick." I said, "...Thanks?"

So I trudged to the bus tunnel, rode the long bus home, fell in bed, and slept. And slept.

This morning I am better, but starting to cough. So I will take a legitimate sick day and allow myself to be legitimately sick. It is for the best, I guess.

Oh, sounds like the pig flu. I hope not!
