Sick Day

Yes, that's right. I phoned in sick. I have only used 5 out of my 20 available days, and I was truly feeling like crap yesterday. Tomato soup at lunch made my stomach cramp up. Same with a handful of Wheat Thins I had for supper. So, I spent over an hour at work last night photocopying and writing detailed notes for the sub.

The problem with getting a sub is that I teach every subject. So, I left brief instructions on how to do relative frequency, Punnet Squares, and so on. It's getting closer to the end of the school year, and I didn't really have any "fluffy and fun" lessons available.

So, I felt like crap and stayed there until 11 p.m. getting ready (sometimes it's just easier to teach sick than to get ready for a sub). And today I was up at 7 a.m. Feeling mostly normal. *growls* Well, screw you. After all of that, I'm taking my sick day!

I'm going to try some toast now.

Addendum: The toast made me nauseous. Damn, damn the Man.
