Never fear, Readers!!! You're fearless blogger is here!! I woke up this morning, feverless, and feeling way less shitty than I have been in the past few days. For some reason, my hips hurt like hell, though... I decided not to question that, stick a heat pad on my lower back, and face the day.
I emailed my boss to tell her that I will be coming in, and that to be safe, I will Clorox everything I touch throughout the day. She seemed pleased with that answer.
So now I'm sitting on my bare mattress while I wash my disease-ridden sheets and Gio plays outside. This is a win-win, seeing as how he loves to be outside and I love to not have my mattress destroyed any further than it already has been.
Here are some of the highlights of the past three days:
A Texting Conversation with Dragon
Me: I still have a fever. I had to call off of work. If I die, remember that I love you... and you can have Gio.
Dragon: My computer exploded and we don't have hot water.
Me: For real exploded? Bad days all around...
Dragon: Yeah, I had to buy a new video card, but the one I bought is pretty cool.
Me: Oh... cool... Today I slept for 50 hours, coughed until I couldn't breathe, and ran out of dog food.
Dragon: Sounds like fun... just as much fun as bathing with a pot of hot water...
Me: Or waking up with a closed throat...
Dragon: I doubt it... Don't eat so much dog food.
Me: It was the only thing I could keep down!!
Side note: I didn't actually eat dog food. My dog ate all the dog food. I would never actually eat dog food. Unless I was being forced or something.
The Very Definition of a Loyalty and Dickishness at the Same Time
Another Texting Conversation While I Was Watching "Yes Man" Last Night
Me: Let's be Yes people. Let's be that couple.
Me: That was meant ironically, right? I see what you did there...
A Phone Conversation with Dragon Earlier that Night
Me: Can you come over?
Dragon: No, Emelie. I'm sorry, but I have class really early in the morning, and I can't get sick right now.
Me: BUT I'M BORRRRREEEDDD.....
Dragon: Oh my gosh, seriously? You're sick. Just go to sleep.
Me: I NEED HUMAN INTERACTION!!!
Dragon (laughing now): No! I have to go to bed and so do you!
Me: ...Well you don't have to be a jerk about it...
Dragon: I'm not being a jerk! I brought you stuff yesterday!
Me: I know...
Dragon: Just get better by Thursday, okay?
Dragon: ...Because Thursday is Valentine's Day, remember?
Me: Oh yeah.... Crap... What are we doing?
Dragon: Stuff. Now go to sleep.
And I didn't. I stayed up watching movies and feeling like death for another 3 hours before finally falling asleep to The Dick Van Dyke Show. Because I'm awesome that way.
