AY

The cold, she has socked me!

Oh, reader, it's too beautiful a day to be bed-(or sofa-)ridden in one's pajamas, all blocked up with mucus. But here I am, congested and logged into work from home, while everyone at work has a spring in his and her step and an iced coffee in hand. Good things always seem to happen when I'm absent. For example, I was absent one Friday in the second grade only to find out on Monday morning that I'd missed out on a surprise viewing for grades 1-3 of Pollyanna in the auditorium. I've been unable to bring myself to view the film since. Later, in the 8th grade, I fell victim to (yes, yet another) stomach bug and was out for a couple of days, during which my fellow classmates sniggered through parts 1 and 2 of a sex ed video shown during Health class.

I wouldn't be surprised if everyone in the office is getting promotions and pay raises and possibly even ice cream cones as we speak. Sigh.

Awww, sorry you're sick!

My grandmother used to always say, its better to get a little sick from time to time, then to always be well and suddenly get really ill ... or something to that effect when translated to english.

Hope you're already feeling better! And as for those ice cream cones - let em get fat for the swimsuit season ;o)

Not to freak you out, but I have a HUGE crush on you....
And no, I'm not a wierdo....but a well-educated, US-bred desi male who is amazed that someone as wonderful as you actually exists. Or maybe I'm just infatuated with the idea of you. I can't tell...
