Sick Is As Sick Does


Last night we were at Target (as usual) and Chris mentioned he wanted to get some multivitamins. "We can't all have superhuman immune systems from working in a school", he commented to me, "hell, at this point you're probably invincible from all those kid germs."

I laughed.

Two hours later my throat was burning, my eyes were itchy, and my entire body was one big ache. Curse you and your jinx, Chris! So this morning I stocked up on orange juice and pumped my face full of Zicam in the hopes of warding off full-fledged illness. I also bought some of those Airborne lozenges- let me give you a little piece of advice: if it's a "medicine" that was "developed by a teacher" what they're really saying is "tastes like crap and is completely ineffective".

Let's just hope I'm fully recovered by turkey time. I'd hate to spend my 28th in a benadryl-induced coma.

In my one year of teaching, not including pracs, I have been sick at least half a dozen times.

No joke.

They say the first year is the worst, that you catch everything. I'm here to tell you that the second year is no better.
