A Two Point Check List

I have a simple, two point check list to see how sick I am.

1. Did I walk to work?  Now, me not walking isn't of itself an indication of illness.  Sometimes I have errands to run that can't be walked to.

Which leads to the second point:

2. Where did I park once I arrived at work?  Is my car down on the street?  Then I'm fine.  Did I park as close to the back door of our office as possible?  Then I'm sick.

Today I drove.  And parked five spaces from the door.

No amount of tea and lozenges could save my voice, and after a morning of backing up phones and answering questions, I was down to a harsh whisper.

I'm taking that as a sign that I should go home and rest.  I was never so glad to step outside and see my car parked so close, getting me that much closer to home and a nest on the couch!


  1. Oh, Michelle! Go home and rest! Call in sick!!

    1. I did! I still have no voice, which makes answering the phones impossible....

    1. Thanks! I'm feeling hopeful that I'm on the upswing of things.

  3. Aw man! Hope you feel better soon! In the mean time, enjoy the rest!

  4. One good thing about being so far behind on my reading is that by the time I get the news that you're sick, you're probably already better. Here's hoping so, anyway.
