I have mono. It kind of sucks.

Right now I feel like I could sleep forever.

I am mollified to know that the past couple of weeks of feverish sick days have an explanation.

Fish Heads: To the doctor who diagnosed me in 5.8 seconds with scarlet fever without doing a throat swab, and got me to take penicillin (which I found out later I am allergic to...).

Flowers: To the nice doctor who took my blood and did a proper throat swab, and discovered that I actually have an untreatable virus.

Fish Heads: To the cars that don't slow down whilst driving through puddles. I like taking showers, just not from the spray of your speeding vehicle.

Flowers: To the tentative arrival of spring.

Flowers: To the cute boy who brings me chocolate and vitamins.

Flowers: To the compassionate coworkers who care about my well-being and force me to go to the clinic when I have a hideous looking rash.

Flowers: To the empathetic family who loves me even though they forgot to tell me that I have an allergy to penicillin.

Flowers: To having a week off to sleep and read, and reflect on the beauty and joy in life.

I love how you started alternating flowers/fish heads and then just stuck with the flowers. That's just the kind of person you are :)

Flowers: to you because you are just wonderful.
