Show & Tell: The Crud Returns

The joys of working in retail... cranky customers, unrealistic expectations from my staff, product that doesn't arrive when it should... and exposure to every germ under the sun. That's right kids, the Crud is back, with a vengeance.

This time it seems to be focusing on my lungs, so the upside is that I don't have a sinus headache. I just have a regular headache. I'm tired, and my voice sounds like I've been chewing on gravel. Somehow, I have to pull it together to go to work at 4. Joys of retail.

Now, before you ask... no I haven't been to Mexico recently, nor around anyone that has recently come back from Mexico. That I know of. Like I said, joys of retail.

I apologize that this show and tell isn't more entertaining, but my brain is on the mushy side right now. Head over to Mel's to check out what the rest of the class is showing.


  1. Sorry you're under the weather - again!

    Hey, did you hear that Jon (from Jon and Kate) was seen leaving a bar at 2 am with a random woman? It's in this week's US Weekly. I love escaping into my gossip mags.

  2. I hope you feel better soon!

  3. Awwww....this is so bad! Hope you recover soon! Good Luck!

  4. You don't have a sinus headache, but if you're anything like me, you have a chestache and a backache from coughing, a sore throat - from coughing and the regular headache - from coughing.

    Poor you!

  5. I've been sick too...and EVERYONE keeps asking me if I have the Swine Flu. I'm going to start telling everyone "Yes, I do" and then coughing all over them.

    I'm a therapist, and see so many clients and get so many stinks! I feel your pain!

  6. Oh, not you too! I know so many people who are sick, including one MILD confirmed case of the stupid N1H1 virus.

    I used to work as a Receptionist at Rec Centres so I feel your pain. These days I'm happy I can hole myself away in my office.

    Get better soon!

  7. Get better soon! I hope the crud stays away for a LONG time!
