Squeeze the juice back into the eyes of those who chose May 4th (the day that I also happen to be unvoluntarily sick) as Senior Skip Day.

I woke up yesterday morning and, of course! My throat hurt, my head was pounding, my entire body was achy, and the only thing I could take was Tylenol. So I gave myself the right dosage, told myself "Go home after Sunday School and get some rest". Well, apparently I wasn't the only sick one, because during Sunday School the Nursery worker for the day also went home (but she beat me to the punch and left Sunday School early). I'm not complaining, I'm just demonstrating my luck to you. Anyway, so she asks if I'll do Nursery, and I cannot say "No" to anyone, so I said I'd handle it, and it wasn't a problem.

I finally got home about noon (my usual time home is 11:30) and I decided that I wouldn't go to evening service even if I felt better - and I did feel better toward the latter of the afternoon, but after supper I started feeling the ickiness come back. I tried for about 3 hours to go to sleep, but it didn't work, so I picked my rest up on dozing off and the sleepiness I felt everytime I had to go pee.

Then the morning came. I felt so groggy and heavy and hurt all over I just wanted to stay home. So I made a bet with myself. I would go to first hour (because of course, the 5 people in my first hour class happen to be skipping for Senior Skip Day left me to be the class babysitter... ALONE) and then go home.


I went into the stupid Nurse's office, told her how I felt, thinking she'd send me home for scare of spreading some horrible flying pig, with out any problems. Well, here my unluck started to run it's fastest course. She decides to take my temperature (and if you knew GHS, this would make you laugh). 98.1. Not a fever. I couldn't go home. Why? She wouldn't let any senior go home for fear I was faking and I was cheating the school system for my day off.

Why would I wake up that early to do that? Do I think like that, that early in the morning? No.

So, I would like to thank everyone for participating in SSD, and I am getting my revenge -- Whether "you deserve to skip" or not.
