A Real Sick Day...

It's been at least 6 years, but the dreaded "day" has finally arrived.  Today, I took a sick day. 

Not one of those pretend sick days that I take in the middle of summer when I just want to lay around on my deck or head out for a day at the beach.  Nope, this one is the real deal.  

I felt less than stellar when I hopped out of bed this morning, but attributed my assey feeling to it being a Monday.   Mondays do that to me.  It wasn't until I got the "bed spins" when I was standing vertical in the shower that I realized perhaps something was amiss.  

Realizing I couldn't safely make the commute to work with my head spinning the way it was, I sent my boss an e-mail and crawled back into bed.  

I don't really care if his first thoughts were that I was up late celebrating Canada's Olympic hockey win.  I wish that was the reason...I can deal with "hangover stupidity", but I can't deal with being sick.  I wasted a sick day for nothing...
