I have three sick days total at work. Yes, just three. One would think that someone working with preschoolers all day five days a week would get a little more than that; especially considering that preschool teachers constantly sit on the floor, change diapers, and wipes noses.
I don’t usually care about that. I never use those days because l never really need them. Except now l’m sick.
Friday night l woke up in the middle of the night with the stomach bug. I stayed in bed and slept all day on Saturday. Kris and l did not get to go to Barnes & Noble, which was sad.
Sunday, l did not go to church because l was still in bed attempting to eat toast. Today I did not go to work. I have very little energy and still have no appetite. I will not be going to work tomorrow, either.
Long story short (after this long ramble), l haven’t been getting any writing done in the past few days.
Good news is, l don’t have a boss to call in sick when it comes to writing. Bad news is, l didn’t get anything done.
How do you take a sick day from writing? Is there such a thing?
