Hair and Hangers

This has all of the makings of being pathetic and hilarious at the same time.  You see, I'm sick.  Like, the type of sick that has me calling in to work and then sleeping until noon.  The kind of sick that has me unwilling to move, and loathe to being upright.

Thankfully, it isn't messy sick.  Just the far more obnoxious fever, scratchy throat and a migraine tri-fecta.  When it came on Wednesday night, I told Ammon it might keep me home.  Deep down though, I didn't believe it.  As a matter of course, I do my best to avoid calling in sick unless I am losing a limb, exorcising a demon (Linda Blair, much?), or should be admitted to a hospital.  But there's something so debilitating about the migraine that supersedes all other illness and impairment.

Waking up on Thursday morning I was pretty sure that a school bus had driven over my head.  Being stubborn, I decided to get up and shower, with the hopes that it would help.  Oh how wrong I was.  I got out of the shower, and called my boss.  Sorry, I won't make it in.  Then I went back to bed, with wet hair.  So all day, I sported the sexiest look you ever did see:

If this isn't a ringing endorsement for the pixie, I don't know what is.  I had a picture with a normal face, but it looks sad, because it's against my better judgement to smile when I feel ill.  I am absolutely the worst sick person in the world.  I get dramatic, whiny, pathetic, and I want everyone to know I don't feel good.

However, one truly hilarious story came from this out of infirmity.  I was stumbling down the hall to the bathroom, and tripped over a hanger that was laying on the floor.  Ammon asked me to please not die.  I told him that he needed to stop leaving his hangers where they could kill me then, as it was clearly one of the ugly orange hangers that we own, and I refuse to hang up my clothes with ugly orange hangers, so the blame is firmly on his shoulders.

Yup, that happened.  I used logic based on the color of a clothes hanger.

My head is still hating me, so I leave off here.  Hope that you are all having a fantastic Friday!
