About a week ago, a few people at work started getting sick and I noticed a bit of a scratch in the back of my throat. Since we had a game release coming up and I had Flaming Lips and Sonics concerts to go to I proposed a deal. I told myself I could get sick as soon as all that stuff was done, but for now I had to stay well. The scratch went away and I felt completely fine, but sure enough the day after it all was finished, I got severely congested and dizzy. I’m grateful I got to do everything I planned to last week, but maybe I should have been a shrewder negotiator with myself and tried to cut a deal that didn’t involve me drowning in my own mucous.
