It is a sunny 75 degrees outside, however the only things I can think about right now are Tylenol, Nyquil and my bed. Despite having a plethora of things to achieve today, my body decided to call it quits for the day, closing up my throat in between hoicks of phlegm while plaguing me with a headache and a desire for unnecessary sleep. I would tell you just how hot I am, but at the risk of sounding like a 65 year old chain smoker I will leave it to the thermometer. Oh great, it says 100.8 degrees. Now I have a fever, too? While these may be the common symptoms of the flu, my body may just be trying to tell me something…
