Frig. I'm sick

As if 2 weeks of vacation didn't throw me off enough, it turns out I've brought back my least-favorite sort of souvenir... an airplane cold! There should be a law against sick people flying. Or maybe I should just give up and wear a mask.

This sucks especially hard because I'm supposed to take workshops and perform on Saturday. Oh yes, and I'm supposed to do a veil piece, but I snapped one of my thumbnails down to the nailbed, so I need to figure out if I can even use a veil with my thumb all wrapped up in a bandage.

In short, this week can bite me, and I am going to go back to doing gentle finger waves as my daily practice and bombarding my body with vitamins and tea.


  1. So.....you were flying when you were sick? Sorry you're having such a bad week. Hope it gets better!

  2. No, someone else was flying when they were sick and I caught their germs. Happens almost every time. I guess I should be glad that it was the return flight, it really sucks to be sick on vacation.

  3. Actually, there's a pretty good change you were flying while contagious. It takes about 1-5 days for a cold to manifest itself after you've been exposed to it.

    It's possible that you picked the bug up in New York and it percolated inside of you while you were on the plane.

    Someone can be contagious before the symptoms manifest themselves, so it's also possible that a person flying with a cold doesn't even know it.

    Hopefully you should be over the worst of it by now.

  4. I flew on Saturday and got sick Monday night, so it IS hard to say whether I caught it Saturday, or when we were in the city on Friday. And I could in fact be the jerk who flew sick (without knowing it). Germs are so evil and sneaky that way.

  5. They be the fruits of the devil. Having Indigo in playschool means the little imps are constantly trying to creep up on us.

    I've learned more about viruses in the past few months than I have in my whole life.

  6. Little kids are total germ vectors! I hope you and your family are doing everything you can to keep your immune systems boosted and avoid the worst of it.
