WAM has bronchitis. WAM sits at the desk right behind mine. WAM is sitting there right now, coughing and squeaking like a seal. (I'm sorry to seals everywhere.)

The only time I've ever had bronchitis was in college, and I had it simultaneously with strep throat. Believe me, you have never known pain like that. I didn't eat for a week, lost 30 lbs. and came close to failing all my classes (thank the heavens and the earth and all that is beneath the earth for understanding teachers and extra credit opportunities!).

When I asked what WAM was doing at work (searching for sympathy, I think. "Oh, I'm sick with bronchitis, poor me!") the answer was "the doctor said I could come if I felt like it."


I swear, if I get sick again, after having just gotten over laryngitis, I will take off someone's head. And it will most likely be WAM's....

Other than that, and the co-worker coughing on the other side of me, I'm having a better day then yesterday. I feel like I want to surround my cubicle in heavy plastic, though!

You'd be cute in a plastic bubble. I want pictures! *wink*

Hmm...what to do, what to do so you don't get sick. I have all these herb books but I don't know where to start to KEEP you from getting sick. Umm..drink cranberry juice at lunch if you can stand it. And have some garlic tea when you get home (it makes you stink though so that's a risk if you have to work tomorrow too). Good luck and rip WAM's head off if you need to, I'll back you up.

Or, I could wrap WAM in a plastic bubble with a big "quarantine" sign on it. That sounds like fun.

I'm silly, I have a mix of Essential Oils in lotion that is good for an immune boost right on my desk! Yummy smelling oils, here I come!
