The Iron Horse

I did something yesterday I hadn't done in 26 months.

I took a sick day.

Luck has been on my side lately.  I've had nothing more than an occasional cold for the last few years.  Most of the illnesses fell on my days off.  If I showed up at work sick, I was able to struggle through it.

A cold that came on last week was particularly nasty, and I can't shake it.  An extended weekend gives me the opportunity.

I know you get sick from germs, not the weather, but the winter of 14-15 can't be helping.  On top of that, it seems like everyone in the office has something.  It will be nice to get away from that, and keep my illness from spreading to others.

Now, off for a can of soup and a little rest.
