Sick

After church yesterday, we went out to lunch with a nice young couple that has visited Vintage a couple of times. Near the end of lunch, I took Vin to the bathroom and while walking back from the bathroom to our table, I felt myself get sick. I am not sure I've ever had that kind of experience - I literally felt myself get sick. I got very, very cold - shivering with it 100 degrees outside. My muscles ached. By the time we got home all I wanted to do was go to bed.

And I've basically been in bed ever since.

I've watched more TV in the last 24 hours than I have all summer. Most of Sunday afternoon, I watched the 100 Greatest Songs of the 90s on VH1. Smells Like Teen Spirit was number one, and U2's One was number two. I would have reversed that order, but that's just me.

Sportscenter airs over and over and over again all night long. If I ever hear Brett Favre's name again, it will be too soon.

And there are several commercials I hate. I hate the Mentos commercial in which the lady kisses the guy and then readjusts his nose. And I hate the Pizza Hut commercial where the delivery girl tells the masked guys that the Joker owes her a new car.

I got up at 6 and tried to go to work, but I ended up calling my boss instead, telling him I wouldn't be there. Instead of going to work, I stayed in bed. Vanessa has taken wonderful care of me. I am starting to feel better and will be headed back to work tomorrow. I am most bummed that I had to postpone my man-date with A. We were going to go see The Dark Knight tonight. We'll have to do it later in the week.

I'm sorry to hear that you've been sick, Robb. There's nothing worse than a summer bug. At least you're feeling better now.
