The year of 2006 of our Lord in the New World had been going so well, too. I hadn't caught a cold, strep throat, pinkeye, dysentery, bird flu, Ebola, spotted mountain fever, or SARS since Christmas. But over the weekend, my throat felt swollen, my nose got stuffed up, and for a while there, I even had a fever of about 100 degrees. My reliable buddy, Tylenol, got rid of the fever for me, but I still have a nasty cough, a sore throat, and sinuses that feel like they've been inhabited by Slimer from Ghostbusters.
I probably caught this from that kid that threw up in my class last Friday. I KNEW I shouldn't have tasted it to see what he had eaten for breakfast!
Random thought of the day:
I was filling up my car at the gas station the other day, using my credit card out at the pumps. The automated machine asked if I wanted a receipt, and my choices were the Yes button and the No button. It seems to me that some of these automated machines need to have more selections when it comes to answering their questions. For instance, when the pump asked if I wanted a receipt, I immediately looked for the button marked, "Well, duhhhhh!!" On the other hand, when the machine asks if you want a car wash, I think there should be a button clearly marked with, "Aw, HELLS no!!"
Not only would our answers be more accurate this way, but it would make using these machines a heck of a lot more fun also.
