In the past, I’ve had little sympathy when reading posts that essentially say, "I’m sick today. Poor me." That has changed. For I am sick today. Poor me.
Perhaps it’s karma. My co-workers have diven me crazy over the past few weeks with their incessant throat-clearings. Perhaps if I’d kindly offered them some cough drops rather than plotting various unseemly demises for each of them, I may have been spared this accursed inflammation. Realistically, though, by that point the air was already saturated with cooties, and I’d now be suffering regardless.
