I have been so sick this week. I think it has been a combo of allergies/cold/sinus infection. I have been a walking and almost-breathing snot ball. I wish I had time to take off from work to just heal but I didn’t. I had to just work. I feel bad because I did get a coworker sick. Poor thing sat beside me and got sick. I was using hand sanitizer, washing my hands and sneezing into tissue or into my inner elbow. It wasn’t enough. I am almost well, but not 100%. I feel ugh. I would love to just stay home tonight and rest and I think it would fix things but that is not going to happen.
I have noticed when I am sick my food cravings are quite different. I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that my taste buds are off and I am having trouble tasting. I want to taste but my taste buds are kind of like numb. I had a big ol burrito from Taco Hell last night. It was tasty. Why? Because it had lots of spice! I could taste it. I used a lot of the Mild Sauce. I can’t use the Fire Sauce. That would have blown my head off. But have you ever noticed that you just can’t taste anything and you’re hungry? So you have to eat something spicy. I know this isn’t ground-breaking news. But the thing is that the burrito I had was so good. I was so hungry. I hadn’t eaten and needed something and that spicy burrito did the trick.
Anyway, I gotta get ready for work. My head is hurting and I gotta get a hot shower so I can face the night.
