I’m Batman! No, I’m not. I’m Sick

I just did a post about me being sick a few days ago. Well, I’m still not out of the woods.  In fact, the woods are still thick around me.  I went to sleep one night a day or two ago, and woke up at 1:30 in the morning to a very wet left eye.  I grabbed my eye drops, went to the bathroom, and saw my pink eye AGAIN!  I was so mad.  I couldn’t go to school that day and I had a test, and several quizzes to take, and I had homework to turn in.  I was righteously pissed.

My nose continues to drain, but doesn’t clear up.  I feel like a clogged drain that only allows a few drops to get through at a time.  On top of that, I got smacked in the face with a wall of steam from dinner several days ago, and burned my one nostril.  But, with my cold, I keep rubbing it every time I try to make it easier for myself to breathe.

When I looked at myself in the mirror, I thought I was looking at somebody who might have lived in medieval Europe, and was suffering from a crippling disease.  I had patches under my eyes, red corneas, a red and irritated nose and chapped lips.  And a gravelly voice.  At least I had that, right?  I can order my siblings around and sound intimidating.  Until they tell me I sound like I’m gargling marbles.  Then, I start rattling off Batman lines so they can laugh at me, and I can laugh at me.  A little bit if self-deprecation prevents arrogance.

I can only hope that with the complete destruction of my eye makeup and sleep masks, the pink eye will go away.  I can only hope that using Vix will nix my cough and cold.  After that, I can cross my fingers, knock on wood, and pray to a higher power that I don’t get sick again (with anything) for a very long time.

And on that note, it’s been real!

I am an imaginative realist. Those seem the best words to describe myself. I look at the world through a microscope and enjoy laughing while doing so. The stupidest things can both annoy and amuse you.
