Strep Throat Mini-Vacation.

I'm sicky poo; strep throat unexpectedly popped up on me.  I guess it's always unexpected.  Whatever.

I can't tell if that means I will have more time to lay around and peruse the internet and be a better blogger, or if I will be lethargic and barely check Facebook.  If last night is any example, we're leaning towards the latter.

The only thing that's been great about this so far is that I totally diagnosed myself.  I might as well be a doctor.  Seriously, I felt almost completely fine*, but noticed a strange, sore throat.  "Strep.  It must be!" thought I.  And, after feeling somewhat foolish for leaving work early to go to a Walgreens Take Care Clinic (which was awesome and I totally recommend, btw) I was quickly vindicated with a positive throat culture.  I've never felt so gratified to be sick.

If you want me, I'll be holed up in my apartment for the next 48 hours per doctor's (er, nurse practitioner's) orders.

*This has since turned into body aches and sleeplessness.  Not fun.
