I have been sick for a week. I knew I would get sick. Half of the people in my department were sick, so I knew I would be next. It started out as a cold, and it is pure evil. Me and a co-worker are still sick. I went to the doctor today, and lo and behold it has become a sinus infection, my first ever. It is awful.
The point of sharing all this is because I want to bitch. I don't have a mommy or an Allie nearby to complain to (although Heather has been taking the brunt of my whining.) I want to bitch because I always seem to get sick at the worst times. I usually get sick when there is something that I was looking forward to. The last major time was at the end of freshman year. To celebrate the end of the first year of college, me, Allie, Melissa, Joy, and Justin planned a trip to Ocean City, MD. The last week of school was very stressful with finals exams and papers stressing me out. Although the stress was huge, the Ocean City trip to look forward to got me by, and I even ended up with good grades. The day we drove to Ocean City I got very sick with a fever. While medicine enabled me to still have a good time, I was still quite upset during the trip. Why did I have to get sick during a time I was looking forward to so much?
Last week I was supposed to go down to NYC to see Youthlarge and Listmaker, and to see Huey Lewis in "Chicago." But of course I got sick. So the play was rescheduled to this weekend. Although I have seen Chicago on Broadway before (in 1999 with Alan Thicke playing the role that Huey will be playing in this go-round), it is tough to not be excited about a chance to see Huey. But being sick is diminishing my excitement. Let's just hope the antibiotics will make me better very soon so I can enjoy Huey in all his glory.
Speaking of Huey....why am I so excited to see him? Hearing and seeing Huey is my ultimate nostalgic trip. My dear brother Listmaker was a huge fan when he was a young teen, and forced his poor sister to listen to him as a toddler. There is a tape of me when I was 2 1/2 where I fill in the blank to Huey lyrics that Listmaker recited. I have loved Huey ever since then. After seeing him in concert twice (once with poor Youthlarge who does not share the love for Huey), seeing him in Chicago will be great.
Sorry for the rambling post. I believe that the sinus infection has spread to the brain.
