Rassin’ frassin’ petri-dish of a work environment. College students (much as I love working with them) are known for passing diseases like toddlers using pacifiers in daycare. And somehow, I got what they all have – a mild but exhausting case of ye olde influenza.

But tomorrow I head back to work. I think I’m no longer contagious, and I’d like to teach the class I’m scheduled to teach tomorrow night, and need some prep time for it during the day. We’ll see if I make it through the day. Wish me luck!

One thought to “February Vacation 2005: What I did during my virally-imposed work break”

  1. How am I NOT getting sick this year? I get sick EVERY year. Last year SO BAD, I swear it was food posioning. If I make it through the winter without getting sick, I’ll probably go into shock instead of spring.
    Glad your feeling better. You hadn’t posted and Doc in the Box still hasn’t posted…and last month I read Eragon, too.
