A Zero on the scale of fun

My boss took one look at me this morning, told me I looked like hell, and pointed me to the nearest walk in clinic.

I was thrilled that there was no one there when I walked in, because we all know you usually catch more in the waiting room of a walk in clinic than you had before you got there. I was immediately ushered into room number one, and there I sat.

For a good 20 minutes!!

WTF?? I suppose the doc could have been doing paperwork or something equally lame, but seriously, I was the only one there. The only one, with a POUNDING HEADACHE. He was probably watching his stories or something.

So now it's official. My cold is the jerk I thought it was, and my self diagnosis was correct. Sinus infection. On the scale of fun, a sinus infection ranks a big ol ZERO!! I am now armed with a wee FORTY DOLLAR bottle of pills (Did Dr. Stories not hear me when I said I DIDN'T have a drug plan???) and am home from work, where I plan to convalesce for the next....oh, hour or so, until I have to go pick up the toddler.

No rest for the infected!

My husband always says: "No good deed goes unpunished"

Then again, I don't know if the punishment would really be any better if you're husband was the one who tore down the tent and would now have a sinus infection...

That sucks. I hope you feel better soon.

By the way, when I looked at your header at my house (while back) on my dark computer screen I thought it was someone with dreadlocks head banging.

Duh on my part.

Not sure why I decided to tell you that now, but...well, feel better soon.

Hope you're home today without the Gman...and your mom is coming this wkd, I think - so you should be able to convalesce and absorb all that expensive pharmaceutical action.
