Spring Break Cold (Slice 29 of 31)
This post is a part of the Slice of Life challenge which is hosted on the Two Writing Teachers blog. The month of March the challenge is to write a blog post a day.
It never fails. The first day of vacation from school and I am wrapped up in a blanket, with a box of tissues, and miserably coughing up a lung. This particular cold was hovering for the last two weeks but did not erupt into explicit symptoms and misery until the last day before Spring Break.
I think that my body and mind conspire against me sometimes. Although I am glad I do not have to work and can rest at home, I would much rather be completely healthy and enjoying the day. My body always seems to know when I have time off and that is when I get sick. Not having to miss work is definitely something I am glad about, and my mind must make it a priority. Is it possible to be that in control of your own body's reactions to germs and contagion? Who knows? Science is a mystery, right?
I hope this cold goes quickly and I can feel better for most of my break. For now, I at least have an excuse for being lazy and reading all day. I intend to do a Spring Break bookaday and get through a big stack of books.
