Sick and tired of being sick and tired

There are two places that seem to be carriers of germs:
  1. Day care centers
  2. Radio stations
It may not seem obvious at first why a radio station would be an epidemic waiting to happen, but when you share microphones, handle the same equipment, and work in the same, badly ventilated, tightly enclosed space, when one person gets sick, eventually just about everybody gets what they had.

Between the PayPal contract (now over...sigh) and the radio station, I've been working at least eight hours a day for 2.5 weeks. This may be good for my wallet, but it sucks for my health. On Tuesday I started having the first signs of a cold coming on. Thankfully the worst of them held off till after my interview.

Wednesday I was S-I-C-K. I showed up at the radio station feeling like crud but in good spirits. I did my annual rhyming traffic and weather at 6:59pm (my last traffic and weather report of my shift), made a quick stop at the Savitzkys', went home, and collapsed.

Right now I'm resting, have the chills on and off, and feel like crud. I wish this thing would go away so I could have a life again. If I seem anti-social, it's just that I'm low-energy and I don't want to share this.
