Know what makes me feel dumb? Calling in a sick to work on Monday., returning on Tuesday only to find you may in fact be getter sicker still, despite having felt perfectly healthy that very morning. Now if I get sicker, I’ll have to call in again. Or it may yet go away later this afternoon. Or if I call in sick, it will as it often does, go away five minutes after I call the boss. Maybe I really will only live to be 55.
