THE TOP 5 THINGS I HATE ABOUT BEING SICK:
5. Looking Like a Melting Yeti
Why does it always seem like when I go out to get medicine, that's when I run into someone I haven't seen in two years?
Me: "Oh hey, Personfromhighschool, I was just checking out these placenta hair treatments in the corner not hiding from you!"
Personfromhighschool: "Hey Shannon, I thought that was you!"
Me: "Yep. It's my lucky day! What have you been up to? You look great!"
Personfromhighschool: "Just working at *****. So do you!" (That's just cruel).
Me: (defensively) "I'm sick"
Continue uncomfortable conversation way too long while staring blankly, mouth open, and dreaming of acquainting my face with the floor.
4. Daytime TV
I don't ever know what's going on but it seems dramatic! I also use up precious energy trying to find the remote which has apparently discovered a time rift between the couch cushions and only appears after I search fruitlessly and call a family member making me look like an idiot. "Did you even try to look?"
3. Everything Tastes Like Old Socks
Ice cream? No. Old socks.
Raspberries? No. Old socks.
Lima beans? No. Lima beans (which taste like old socks)
2. Having the Energy of an RC Car
Now I'm not talking about Christmas Day, Mom remembered the 8 nine volt batteries RC car. I'm talking about the day after Christmas, pitiful, most of the batteries drained, RC car. I also tend to make the same low whining sound, too, which brings me to the final thing I hate about being sick:
1: Sounding Like a Whiney B
Which is probably because I'm being a whiney B...........but I'm sick :(
Later, blog readers!
