Halfway - cellophane
the story of an invisible girl

Halfway
I think I might be coming down with half a cold. The left side of my throat hurts a whole lot. The right side? Feeling great. Maybe I'll take half a vitamin, along with half a bowl of chicken soup.

Tonight, perhaps half a Nyquil. Would that be just a Nyq? Or maybe I should just take the Uil. No, wait. It's the left side that hurts...that means I should take the Nyq part. Unless it's written in Hebrew. Then I'll take just the Liu, and nothing more.

Tomorrow I shall probably take half the day off, and spend it resting with half my body in bed. I shall drink halfway inbetween "lots of fluids" and "the amount of fluids I generally drink". I think I'll watch the first half of lots of soap operas, and I will watch the second half of some talk shows.

I will wear only one contact lens, and I will dress warmly on half of my body. The other half won't need the warmth, so I'll dress business-casual there. I'd better wear half a hat when I go to my half-day of work.

I'll wear one fuzzy slipper, and one mitten. I'll walk slowly with my left foot, and bounce happily on my right. Every other word I say will be deep-throated and scratchy. I will constantly blow one nostril, and I will breathe freely out of the other.

I've never had half a cold before. Perhaps it will be an adventure! Or maybe I'll just stop being silly and get back to work.

I'm 50% sympathetic! I hope you get slightly better soon!

Re:

If she keeps getting 50% better, she'll never be entirely well. But I suppose at some point she'll be close enough not to notice the difference.

Re:

That's a good goal to have in lots of areas of life: close enough not to notice the difference.

Diagnosis

Nice little essay but your symptoms indicate to me based on experience that you are about to have a full blown cold. ):

Me too

The top part of my throat hurts, and I am terrified of a cold. NO! I have places to go, beads to throw, I cannot be sick. I am not sick. Maybe I ate something that made the top part of my throat sore and my sinuses icky and my head hurt a little. I'm drinking Naked Food-Juice with an immune boost and hoping for the best. And I am ignoring my favorite Canadian's comment to you!!

Re: Me too

Oh yeah - the point of that was - who do you think we got it from? Shall we blame Adrian or Rob?

Re: Me too

Oh no! You're right: you don't have a cold. You probably just choked on a tortilla chip...those will do that to you after all. You'll be fine tomorrow. You're going to have WAY too much fun to get sick! I'm positive.

If not though, I say we blame L. She had a cold last week. Adrian? Do you mean Sandy, or did I forget somebody's name?

There's no point in us sharing half a cold. I'll take your half; I don't have anywhere to go this weekend. Then you'll be healthy again, right?

*hugs!*

Perhaps you needed to get back to work, but don't stop being silly!

I hope you're feeling half better tomorrow. :)
