Sick Day


A long-lost ficleteer trying to take a shot at writing once again.

Tea with honey and lemon

A steaming bowl of chicken noodle soup

A cough as I choke down some cold syrup

A warm blanket with an equally warm cat atop it

The remote's within reach

An excuse to be lazy and watch tv

You know, being sick is kind of nice

Besides the feeling crappy part

It's like a vacation from life

A forced vacation, but still

I need a break from life

So, I'm going to snuggle up under this blanket

It's almost time for my NyQuil

And then it's off to dream land

Back to reality tomorrow

But that's another day

Today I'll enjoy my sick day

So much truth in this. Sick days can be such a relief!

Sleep is good. But I feel like you, that I am missing so much and nothing is getting DONE and no one can do it but me. Work can wait.
