Karma

I stayed home sick today.  I was working on a big deal of an issue on Friday, but I was in just too rough shape to go in today.  I had to pass it off to someone else.  I feel awful about that, but the guy I asked to take over is actually a better coder than I am so if something comes up today (I don’t think it will, I think we covered all the bases on Friday) the customer will be in good hands.  I still feel like crap about it though.

Feeling sick today is karma.  I was the one who canceled band practice last night.  A stomach bug is the universe’s way of calling me a dick.  Sorry guys.  I’ll make it up to you.

I actually feel a little better now than I did at 6:30 am when I went back to bed.  I can’t tell if that’s because I am better, or because I just haven’t eaten anything yet.  I am a big fat guy who is literally afraid to eat.  That’s how bad I felt when I woke up at 3:30 am or so.  Yikes.

One of my neighbors has been running a weed wacker for a solid 30 minutes.  I’m thinking he might actually be mowing his lawn with it.  The things you see when you stay home sick, am I right?
