Any Scientist can tell you the three things that cause most common illnesses: 1) Being around Small Children, 2) Being Outdoors, and 3) Thinking Impure Thoughts. Apparently standing about outside during Tuesday's Evacuation Drill was enough to tip me over. I started feeling Not Well that afternoon, and kept going. At BHFT on Thursday morning, I found myself thinking "If I just hang in here for seven more hours
, I can go home." Not good sign. I packed it in, went home, and slept most of the day.
The good news is that this ailment doesn't have the effusive secretions of a cold, nor the feverish temperatures of the flu. Mostly, I'm tremendously tired
, with my head feeling awful. It's like trying to think through wet sand.
I'm feeling better today, but have already had one nap. I hope to be well enough for the Social Gatherings this Saturday (it's not as if I go to that many). I hope there won't be any Small Children present... Current Mood: sick
