Weakened Weekend

7:52 AM

"Is this too gross to post?..." I wondered as I clicked the "publish" button.
Come on, you can handle it, right? Because I've had to live this, people! Okay, maybe the inner-tubers are fictional, but I've been so sick this weekend and "runny nose" barely begins to describe it. I'm still pretty sick. As I'm typing this, it's 8:56pm Sunday night and I'm in bed already, wearing a breathe right strip with a pile of toilet paper next to my bed because I never bother to buy kleenex. It's a sorry sight.

This weekend has been a slew of sorry circumstances, and it was only accentuated by my sniffling and sneezing. I was prevented from visiting my parents this weekend due to a forest fire that closed a nearby highway, which resulted in me spending my weekend playing the game of watching TV shows that were filmed in New York (which I just visited for the first time) and mentally saying "I've been there!" every time characters walk past a familiar landmark. And when that got old, I got sucked into watching a BBC miniseries starring Judi Dench because there was nothing else on TV. It felt like a real low point. 

But I'm sure today will be a better, brighter day. 
With less forest fires, less BBC, and less nose-blowing.
