Polly had a daughter who was sick, sick, sick....
In other flu-related news, I've completely lost my senses of smell and taste. I couldn't even smell the litter box yesterday, which Mike assured me was particularly nasty. I am quite happy that I could not smell the litter box, but I am quite perturbed that I have no working taste buds. In order to get some flavour into my lunch, I put both yellow mustard and blackberry jam on my chicken sandwich. It tasted like something, although I'm not sure what.
I spent a few minutes yesterday and this morning looking at my throat with the help of a flashlight and damn it's ugly. Beyond being sick, which made one side of my throat bright red and slightly pussy, throats are just ugly. Especially the uvula. It's gross, all hanging there and stuff. Blech.
but, erm, "my throat is bright red and slightly pussy" i don't have a sick mind or anything but (insert nasty joke about throat and pussy here).
