Hopefully I only have one of those.  And hopefully something simple like strep or tonsillitis or acute sinusitis (fancy term for sinus infection).  I’d hate to have typhoid fever or cyanide poisoning or any of those other really nasty things…  😉

I probably should’ve stayed home from work.  Maybe I’ll just work a half day… or until I can tell I actually have a fever.  One person has already asked if I’m sick…  *sigh*

Stay well, friends.
