Everyone at my office is sick. Even Phil was sick last week.
There are maybe 3 of us in the office that are not.
I hesitate to say this... but I am currently not sick. Oh man it needs to stay that way.
I think it is partially because I am sucking down fluids like it's my second job, eating more vitamin C than my body could possibly need, and going to bed at like 9 every night. And my excessive water drinking makes me go to the bathroom almost hourly, meaning my hands get washed A TON.
But I am starting to wonder if I should just be working from home. Since all the sick people who should be home being sick are at work being sick, maybe that means the healthy people should be home? I don't know, the logic makes sense to me.
It is a constant symphony of coughing, sneezing and sniffling around here. I'm almost afraid to take deep breaths. My cubemate has a cough that sounds like Gollum. At least every minute, one of our drafters starts hacking up a lung. My boss sneezes like 6 times in a row. All of their kids are sick with Influenza B and have been passing it around to each other. It's like a cesspool of viruses.
The other day, some of my coworkers opened up a bag of chips and a jar of salsa and offered to share it with me. Thanks but no thanks. I'm staying 5 feet away from communal areas for the next 2 weeks.
Who am I kidding... the only reason I decided to not work from home today was because we are getting Padington's Pizza for lunch today (individual ones. There's no way I'm sharing communal food with these people right now). And I can almost NEVER turn down Padington's.
In case you aren't blessed to know what Padington's looks like, here it is:
Tell me that not worth risking illness for.
