The view from the floor

Days like this make me miss shag carpet

I spent quality time on the floor with my Thumper yesterday, trying to beat my lungs into submission. At least it spared me from searching more “flu or cold” web sites. I’m voting flu, which doesn’t make sense, as I got my flu shot. It must wear off by March because this has happened before.

Either March hates me, or, flu shots don’t work for me.

It’s an odd virus too. I felt well enough to work in the morning and early afternoon. When I had finished, I felt like the elephant minding his own business when a tranquilizer dart zipped out of nowhere and tapped my ass. Timber, down I went for the afternoon. Nausea joined the party last night, limiting dinner to chicken soup and Tylenol.

Worst of all, my wife has it now. She’s still in the bedroom knocked out. I feel terrible I gave it to her.

I did get a burst of energy at midnight and wrote a different blog post, which I didn’t post. Not sure if I will. I always worry when they come too easily.

Battle royale, day six, begins.

  1. Oiy! I hope you can get up off the floor soon…

    My clinic makes me get Tamiflu filled every year to take the moment a flu-like fever comes on, even though I get my flu shot every year.

    Sending positive juju your way.

    • Hey, Florida Girl,

      I’m off the floor – barely. I’m pissed at my clinic for not thinking of that. F me. It pisses me off. I should have some of that here.

      Thanks for the . . . juju. I think.


    • Lizi Lizita,

      I got off the floor, but then I had to help somebody learn Twitter in an instant, and I fell back down. 🙂

      I disagree, nicely, with the comment about blog posts. Not all are winners. But then again, it’s a blog post, not a New Yorker article. So, maybe you’re right. And I only have six crazy readers.


  2. Aie,you’re still sick?! You can have the flu inspite of the flushot. Hope you get better soon! C u on twitter 🙂

  3. I hate the flu. Are you coughing so hard your legs shake? That’s what happens to me every single time. Hang in there, dude. Like they say in college: If you are upright, you are on your way to feeling better. Of course, booze and the flu are two very different things. Hey maybe booze would help? 😉
