sidebar of the peopleI've been sick with a cold. Not just the sniffles, thank you very much. But the get - on - the - couch - and - sleep - all - day - who - cares - if - I - haven't - showered kind of sick. It was a really good, ideal kind of cold. The kind of cold I dream about when I am sick of work and I want a really good excuse for not going in.
Here's the twist. I got sick on Christmas day and stayed home the two following work days. How lame is that going to look on my timesheet? My boss is going to take one look and say, "Right. Two sick days at the end of the year, just before he's about the lose them. Liar."
