Well, E. ended up catching The Sickness on Saturday. Sniffles, fever, and the achies did not ruin her plans for a jolly week. They did however make thinking and functioning in general a bit more difficult. E. is very grateful not to be a full time student right now!
Her suggestion for living with The Sickies: Avoid reading Dante's Inferno right before bed, especially if you have a fever. Fever dreams are weird enough, but fever dreams+Hell? (No wonder E. woke up in a cold sweat. Or was that just because she was sick? Maybe both.)
3 Days until Birthday!
