serna Health Update

It’s been a long time since I posted a “serna Health Update” so I guess it’s time for another one.

I’m sick. I’ve been sick for a long time now; probably close to a month. It started out as a normal cold, but then it just hung in there, and refused to fully go away. If you have me on your MSN Messenger list, and have been noticing that my message hasn’t changed much in a week or two, it’s not that I forgot to change it—it’s that my nose really was running all that time.

Well, this week the cold germs decided to regroup, and give it another shot. I guess the head of the germs—who, I assume, is named George W. Virus, or Cold W. Germ, or something—decided for a “germ surge”. It didn’t work—hopefully he wasn’t surprised by that, nobody could have thought that a few extra germs would actually kill me—but it was a minor inconvenience for a couple of days. A couple of days that I spent on my couch, drinking tea and chicken broth, watching bad TV, and occasionally sleeping. And drinking SoBe Green Tea, which supposedly has echinacea in it. (I just realized, when looking up their web site, that they spell it “SoBe” instead of “Sobe” which is how I’ve always spelled it. Whoops.) Oh, and also sweating a lot; for some reason, this particular cold was really making me sweat.

That’s the bad news. The terrible news is that I’m back at work now. I actually preferred being sick to the foolishness I’m dealing with at work, these days.

But, since I don’t post about work on this blog, I guess this is where I’ll stop typing, and click Submit.
