I’m not sure if I posted here or just in random e-mails to friends, but my philosophy was after losing first the car, then the job, a flesh-eating virus was coming next.
Let me report it has. Yesterday I awoke at 5:30 a.m and started vomiting blood. I was dizzy and nothing would come out but dry heaves and…blood. Thankfully, my husband took me to the doctor (yay for insurance I kept through him and a $20 co-pay) and we discovered I have some nasty virus “all the kids have” and half the schools are emptied because of it — oh, and by the way, it’s highly contagious.
I don’t hang out with any kids, so I’m guessing I got it from the grocery store? Either way, I got two different medicines, am not vomiting blood anymore, so cancel all my Italian opera appearances. I am very hungry after living on ginger ale for 2 days, and have broken blood vessels in my face and eyes from all the wretching.
What a wonderful job candidate I make!
