Seems like when I was a kid, staying home from school was neat, with the exception of being sick to do it. now it seems more like a hassle to be home sick. and along with that, we lose time at work, and hence lose money.
but when your throat burns, plus coughing, and a monster of a headache, with dizziness, and yesterday I was freezing, despite the heat, I think it is a good reason to stay home. particularly when I am working on gutting out an old farm house at work, full of insolation with mouse/squirrel crap, and even some long dead creatures hidden away in the insolation.
so, yes, I am home from work today, but enjoying it? not really.
