Better Today, Or--

     Or To Hell With It, I'm Going In Anyway.  I think I am doing better today; at least my sinuses have slowed down and earlier, I was able to drink a glass of juice without coughing.  My voice is still not quite back, but most people who know me would consider that a positive.

     Besides, say I'm wrong; say I'm a-gonna swoon later today.  Would I rather do so at home, where Tam might be at the range, or wouldn't it be better done at my work, blocks away from several hospitals and surrounded by healthy young people who can help load me onto a gurney?  I think the choice is clear!

If you're gonna swoon, best to do it where someone can catch you.

What Fuzzy said. Also, might as well swoon whilst on the clock.

Best work advice I ever got was to work when you're sick, and call in sick when you need a day off.

"OMG, she called in sick? She looked like death warmed over 3 months back when she worked sick. She must be *really* sick!"

(Note: When using this technique, it's best to not be seen out-n-about looking healthy. Stay home, sleep in. Catch up on *indoor* chores...)
