Down for the count.

I was prepared for the hangover. I knew I drank too much, so I loaded up on ibuprofen and water. I was at home, not driving, so I was only stupid, not dangerous.

I got the flu instead. Maybe it was food poisoning, I don’t know.

We were supposed to go to a friend’s house for a stupor bowl party on Sunday. Instead I spent the day alternately sleeping, vomiting, moaning over the pain in my head, shivering, sweating. When I throw up it is with such force, I break blood vessels around my eyes. Scares the cats.

I told E I thought I would be okay, he could go to the party. Well, bless him, he came home at half-time to take care of me. He got me bananas and children’s liquid ibuprofen (yummy grape flavor).

Much better now, still not completely up to snuff. And unlike everyone else who gets the flu, I didn’t drop any weight.
