It seems like everyone is getting this nasty, hacking cough that's going around. I stayed home from work yesterday because of it. Despite all the nose-blowing and bone-rattling coughs, I actually had a pretty good day.
I did all the normal sick day stuff: slept in, stayed in PJs, watched Price is Right, ate grilled cheese and brought my bed pillow and comforter to the couch. Glorious!
On top of that, I got actual work done. I did a little brainstorming, a few follow-up e-mails and the best one, I got some interest in a pitch I had made earlier in the week. If anything beats getting a reporter interested in a story, it's doing it while at home, in jammies, with unbrushed hair.
Icing on the cake? Sure, there was. In the mail, I got my Real Simple magazine and a rebate check I'd been waiting for.
Not much can beat that sick day, right?
