Remember when you were a kid and you jumped at any opportunity to stay home sick from school?
It seems like when you pass the threshold into adulthood, that same joy no longer exists.
I’ve spent the entire day sick at home bored out of my mind. On a positive note, I’ve been catching up on Grey’s Anatomy! I laughed, I cried, I learned about all kinds of impossible medical conditions… If you find me yelling “code blue” in the next couple hours, you’ll know I’ve watched just a little too much.
I’ve been balancing it out by reading my textbooks in between episodes. I also planned some fun with one of my girlfriends for tomorrow. For now though, I’ve just been sitting around on the couch sipping tea. And it got me wondering, what else can I do with my spare time?
Unfortunately, something like a cough doesn’t go away in 24 hours. Even though I feel like I’ve been resting a lot, it’s not that easy to get over!
So for now, I’ve decided to take on as many “sick” remedies as I can, and avoid using my voice.
Sometimes there’s not anything else you can do but wait out the storm.
If anyone knows a quick way to get over being sick, feel free to share the knowledge! Readers, how do you spend your time sick at home?
