A faithful reader and a horrid weekend

As the title of this post suggests, I had a horrid weekend. I spent most of it in a state of breathlessness. The state of breathlessness was not due to an elevated yogic status that I  had acquired, that allowed me to tap the Universal Cosmic Energy and live without the support of such mundane things like air. It was, in actuality, caused by a mundane thing of a different kind. A extremely small mundane thing known as the common cold virus. All thanks to this virus, I spent all of Friday, sneezing and coughing my guts out in office. My behaviour, for which I was neither responsible nor had any control over, ensured that people at work maintained a safe distance of about 1.5-2 feet while talking to me.  I don’t blame them. These things are contagious, you know. By Saturday, the common cold had developed further and fever was added to the cocktail of viruses( is that correct to say? viruses??) enjoying their  weekend party in my sickness ridden, broken body. Naturally my long list of Things To Do This Weekend, went flying out of the window and I spent all day in bed, popping in Crocins- to keep the temperature down, loading up on fluids- to flush out the virus and listening to music-to keep my mind occupied and avoid boredom. Sunday morning has been a tad better than the last two days. I am assuming (fingers crossed) that I am on the path to recovery now and hopefully by Tuesday I will be fit to be back at work. Arrgh! I hate being sick!!!!!!!!!!!

I’d like to thank my faithful reader Lively, for regularly dropping me reminder comments and demanding new posts. When someone asks so nicely how can I refuse?! I wasn’t about to write a post on my unexciting weekend, but when you asked for a new post, Lively, I just had to write one and this is all I could write about! Next post should be better! 😀
