flu

i left home early so i could finish all the work that needed to be done at the office of legal aid.

it wasn't meant to be. nearing jollibee, philcoa- i intended to have a light breakfast- i suddenly began sensing a headache in its nascent stages. i headed for home. i thought that the things i needed to do, i could do them at home; i'll just mail the memos to myself and print it out later in the day, at OLA, when i'll have been feeling better.

things weren't easier. i stopped by Starbucks to give my body a chance to heal itself. maybe all i needed was a cup of caffeine. i wasn't feeling too chummy with instant coffee of late. i told the barrista that i would be having a double short americano. i also ordered a croissant for a pseudo-breakfast. i wasn't feeling any better, so i headed for home.

at home, i couldn't parlay the thought of my work piling up on me, so after a big gulp of air, i headed back to UP.


i almost wasn't able to finish the case statuses and their respective tables of contents because my head was starting to feel stuffy. i was also developing a very bad cold.

at close to eleven, i started back for home. nevermind that i was still scheduled to make three memoranda of law for our Director. i couldn't work with a burgeoning headache.

i was also starting to feel the chills. in fact, when i turned off the aircon, and even with my car baking in the midday sun, the temperature still felt right. i decided then that i had a fever. i went home, endured the chills, and tried to sleep my fever off.


it's almost six. i still feel sick- sick enough to avoid work of any kind. i think i'll just wait for the simpsons on cable.


funny, 'no? you get to have half the day off from work when you're sick, but you won't be able to enjoy it. sometimes, i just want to run away from it all.

He, he, yup, that's the bug that's been going around. I had mine a couple of weeks back. Nasty stuff. I hope you're feeling better.
