I didn’t get it confirmed until Monday morning, but I came down with the flu last Saturday. It ruined my whole weekend and week. I’ve missed the last 4 days of work (not necessarily a bad thing), but I’ve been left to fend for myself since the wife is out of town. I’m sure I infected the local cvs and grocery store to get the stuff I needed, too.
I’m sure I caught it from a co-worker, even though I got the shot early this year. I don’t understand why you show up to work if you’re in such bad shape.
It’s all a matter of perspective, but it caused me to miss out on a couple events I like to do this time of year. The wife and I have even cancelled hosting Christmas dinner and probably won’t be doing anything, since our local siblings don’t want me anywhere near them. And I’m sure she’ll get it when she comes home.
