Throughout the day yesterday, I was slowly consumed by a vaguely familiar feeling–one that says: you are getting sick! Sure enough, by the end of the work day, I was feeling it: running nose, stuffy head, headache, etc. I am supposed to get a flu shot on Tuesday. I am hoping that it’s not too late.
They have been putting up wall clocks here at work. They are fancy, GPS clocks, whose time is synchronized by satellite. Otherwise, they look like the clocks you’d find in a school classroom, minus the stentorian ticking. One showed up on the wall outside my office. Another about 40 feet to the left, and still another 60 feet to the right. Standing in myoffice door, I can now see three clocks. Another clock hangs above the elevators. They didn’t appear all at once, but one-by-on, like the symptoms of a virus–the flu, perhaps. I have more empathy with Captain Hook than I used to.
Played a good round of Tiger Woods after work yesterday, something like -4 through 13 holes until I screwed up a par 5.
Kelly suggested I go to bed early. I didn’t cook dinner and I was in bed at 6:30 PM and out cold. When I woke up, it was something like 4 hours later. Kelly was sound asleep and I was wide awake. Not feeling better, but not any worse either. I went downstairs, and watched the tivo’d episodes of Smallville and The Office that I missed earlier. I read for a while, and then went back to bed. Eventually, I transferred to the guest room because I was tossing and turning a lot and didn’t want to keep Kelly up, or get her sick.
Spoke with Mom today. Received a few cards in the mail.
It’s deathly quiet in the office this morning. Weather is supposed to be beautiful today. Sunny and mid-70s. strausmouse is on the slow boat to China, where he’ll be bandying about for 9 days.
Today’s reading: Einstein.
ETA: Yesterday, when I said to Karl and Leanna that I was disturbed by the fact that I could see three clocks when standing just outside my office, Karl responded instantly with, "Well, maybe you should stay in your office and get some work done." SMACKDOWN!
