Sick Day

Dear Internets,

Please excuse Chris from his blog today. Trust me, he's not happy about it. He's sick and he'd rather be here than hacking up a lung and trying to figure out exactly who set his throat on fire (and who knew throats were flammable?). But alas he is doing his very best not to swallow a fire extinguisher and is in no shape to type after an evening filled with beer and NyQuil.

Chris hopes to be back on his feet tomorrow. In the mean time if you really need something to talk about, he received this message in his fortune cookie last night: a clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory. Discuss.

Yours in Christ,
The Management

Feel better soon, Chris! I woke with a fever of 100.2! I'm coughing up a lung as well and having chills.
Guess they passed the health-care reform just in time!

I was hoping to read your comments on the health care bill passing. However, I hope that you will soon feel better. Enjoy your day in bed.

(The only thing that has worked for my cough this season is an inhaler, so, here's hoping that yours is better with a few doses of NyQuil)

My memory is horrible, so I guess my conscience should be squeaky clean.

Ha. Wish it were that easy...

Feel better!

I would some what agree. As no one is perfect.
or you could look at it, as even if you have done something bad and you have convinced yourself that your not bad therefore your conscience is clear?

Hope you get over your spring whatever soon.

Aw. Get well soon!

A clear conscience is the sign of a sociopath. I regularly forget details, but I always remember feeling bad about something. For some reason. That I can't remember.

Get well soon.

Feel better soon Chris. Have some warm tea with honey. And don't let the kids breathe on you.

feel better soon (but don't rush back to work)!

Hope you feel better soon! For the sore throat, I can recommend having 2 teaspoons of honey and 2 teaspoons of cider vinegar (or more, if you can stand it) dissolved in a glass of warm water. The cider vinegar helps to kill off the germs (and depending on how much you add, keeps away other people with germs) and the honey soothes the soreness. Fingers crossed for a speedy recovery (although no need to rush back to work)!
