The Cold II – The Revenge

November 10, 2005

Can you believe it? I can’t. Monday – still yukky, sinus nastyness, worked and went to bed at 6.30. Yep 6.30.

Tuesday – woke up, proper nights sleep, properly rested, not 100% but well again.

Wednesday – feel positively chipper! Happy, smiley and well again.

Thursday – struck down in the prime of life. Runny nose, headache, sinuses screaming, urge to curl up in a ball under my desk and just sleep.

How does this happen? Sneaky little bloody cold virus, tricking me into feeling well and then attacking me again whilst my back was turned. I am not, as you say, a ‘Happy Bunny’.

On a slightly different note, when I moved into MY OWN OFFICE (sorry haven’t managed to get out of the habit of that!) there was a big plant in the corner. It was well. The past couple of days I have noticed that the leaves have started dropping off at an alarming rate. Someone has been in and watered it this week so I can only guess it is one of two things:

1) It is true and all plants have to do is come within a 2m radius of me to die. This does not apply at home as they have the G#1 green fingers forcefield around them.

2) This office is slowly killing the both of us.

If I was prone to melodrama then I would decide that it is the latter. Which I am so I will!

Can someone come and rescue me please???

    You know you need to water it, right? Plants need water. But maybe not every day. Lie, maybe only on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

    Either you gave the cold to the plant or the plant gave the cold to you.

    AC: We have people that come in and do that for us. I cannot be trusted with plants.

    Doug: I’m betting it was the plant getting it’s evil revenge for the distress I have caused other plants in the past.
