Ugh, I’m sick. And missing a million fun things tonight - the Nikki McClure opening at Land, Corin Tucker’s playing, STLS is playing somewhere else, I have a gift certificate to the soda fountain that I want to spend. AND the other day, when I thought this was cramps and not illness, I made a big batch of delicious and extremely rich stuffing from an old Betty Crocker cookbook that is now languishing neglected in my refrigerator.
The thing about me and stomach flu is that my head doesn’t feel sick so I convince myself it’s not that bad. I can think relatively clearly, no scary cough or brain-rattling sneezes. But once I start moving I remember how terrible I feel and then it’s time to collapse on the couch with David Copperfield (it’s time for my annual rereading) and the cat if I can catch her.
Send me your flu remedies! There’s only so much flat Sprite a girl can drink. How do you deal with digestive distress?
Not originally from here, but I don’t plan on going anywhere
