Man Down

I'm sick.

Like, really sick.

In fact, I have strep throat.

My 5-minute strep test took a mere 25 seconds to show positive yesterday afternoon. What can I say, I am an overachiever. I am also, apparently, 12 years old again. (I should stop being overly dramatic. The last time I had strep was not when I was 12. I was actually 18. It was over Labor Day holiday of my first semester in college. It's only been 13 years.)

Have you ever had strep as an adult?

It's awful.

Take this one in slowly, friends. I. Cannot. Eat.

That's how swollen my throat is...

A diet of popsicles and juice is my norm for a couple of days.

But after a giant shot that contained medicine that's a cousin to penicillin, I should be able to head back to work tomorrow.

As for now, there's a man down in the Bowers' household and I'm going to take a nap.
