I felt fine all day today and then this evening I went out to dinner with a friend. Our dinner was short, lasting perhaps an hour or so before I went home. After I arrived home, I felt a sudden onset of fatigue and the chills came upon me. I’ve had enough common colds to know that this isn’t a cold. The lethargic feeling and the chills are a sign of the flu. Bleh.
It didn’t even occur to me during this break that I could get sick but now that I think about it, this is such a typical thing for this to happen to me. I finally get some extended time off, only to spend it being sick. My own “Bad Luck Brian” meme writes itself in this case.
Another friend of mine actually warned me I might get sick on the weekend. She either came down with a bad cold or flu and said it was going around quite quickly. I hadn’t heard about this at all as no other people I knew were ill. Bam! Now I’m wearing socks in bed and shivering. Maybe I should have gotten that flu shot at work when I had the chance. Oh well.
If I had to guess, I think this will knock me on my ass until probably at least Monday, just as I need to get back to work on Tuesday.
