Suffering in Silence

I’m still sick.  It’s not the flu, or if it is it’s a weak, wimpy strain.  Not that I’m complaining, but I am

sick of being sick. 

It hurts my throat to speak above a whisper because I’ve all but lost my voice, and I never even got the sexy Kathleen Turner voice I usually get for a couple of days when I’m sick.  I’ve taken two legitimate sick days this week (if I have to explain the “legitimate” part, you don’t know me) and I’ve used up my sick leave.  Good thing I’m part-time.  I don’t have to be back at work until Wednesday, so hopefully this plague will be gone by then. 

I do, however, have my first class on Tuesday, so I’m hoping to at least get my voice back by then even if I’m not feeling better.  It would be nice not to be known as the mute chick, y’know?
