Thursday is a great day to do that 1 thing you don’t want to do but also don’t want to continue thinking about doing.
I’m sick and grumpy and sick and am 100000 positive I have a fever because I have all the symptoms of a fever and also I called my mom and she said, “Yes, you probably have a fever, you would be able to know for sure if you still had the thermometer I got you and we wouldn’t even be having this conversation if you had gotten a flu shot like I told you to.” So: All signs point to fever.
So my 1 thing today was to get out of the disgusting nest of blankets I’m in and put on a coat and leave my apartment and walk down some stairs and then walk 100 feet to the corner store to buy some Advil. And I did that. Success. $8.99 for 40 liquid gelcaps. The clerk just made up the price. That’s fine. The less happy part of the mission was that I also bought double chocolate Milano cookies and just ate 12 of them and now also have a stomach ache in addition to a whole body ache and a head ache and did I mention that when I don’t feel well I revert to a tiny little whiny child because that is 1 fact about me.
