Which is ironic since yesterday morning I told Wendy: "It's amazing I haven't caught a cold yet since Jerry was sick last week and all my students are sick." Then, BAM! I wake up today with a sore throat, drippy nose, and all around ickiness. And actually, it kinda started yesterday, but I didn't really notice the sore throat so much since I drank plenty of cold beer while we watched afternoon football with some friends, but this morning was the beginning of the true, full "ick."
However, it's just a head cold, so I took some cold medicine and I am at work (hey, I spent most of my weekend reading papers so I am GOING to be in class in order to return that work to my students -- I didn't get all caught up for nothing).
And tonight? We bowl! It's going really well in this league so far, despite our original reservations about it. Currently, our team is in 5th place, and Jerry won "Bowler of the Week" after his performance last week. So, now everyone on my team has earned that distinction except for me. I guess it's time to step up my game. Although, with this cold medicine running through my veins, making me a bit loopy, I don't know if tonight will be "my" night. Well...maybe a few beers will counter-act that cold medicine, right?
