Sick days are far from fun. They wreak havoc on your plans, make you grumpy and tired and down right miserable. They are boring. They involve the boss ringing to see when you will be back, and three hour return trek to Doctors who charge you fifty dollars for the two and a half minutes it takes them to look in your mouth, your eyes, your ears and then sign a printed form. Sick days, in short, suck.
Today I am sick.
But being the Pollyanna that I am, here’s what can make it a little better.
· Sleeping in.
· Waking up 4 hours after you would usually then staying but bed to finish that tattered paint splattered book you’ve been carrying around with you for the last month in your work shorts, trying to finish between sandwiches and cups of tea on your fifteen minute work break.
· Watching a DVD.
· Finishing a drawing you thought you never would, then spamming a girlfriends FB page with pictures of it.
· The smell of chicken soup simmering away on the stove.
