In line with taking full advantage, I had Ammon go to he store to get me my favorite sick person's meal: saltines and ginger ale. These two items happen to be 2 of my favorite things on the planet, even when I'm not sick, so the fact that I get to have them in nearly unlimited quantities when I am sick is like a gift from the heavens. According to the nutritional facts, I ate approximately 15 servings of saltines Tuesday night and all day Wednesday. I can't remember the last time my body was so carb-tastic.
Another fun fact: This is only the 3rd sick day that I have taken in 3 years. I usually go to work, even if I'm dying. Again; if I can drink coffee, I am well enough to face the world. Even if I can't breathe, or my head is being split down the middle by a proverbial pick-axe.
I'm really curious about how other people are when they're sick, and what they eat. Literally, I do not move from bed unless it's an emergency, and I sleep and read like they're going out of style. But I guess some people are trashy tv watchers? Disinfectors? Knock me out with cold medicine and I'm sleeping through the whole damn eventors? Also, I hear some people don't drink ginger ale??? My best friend drinks cinnamon tea, and it totally baffles me how that can be her drink of choice. So please... tell me all about how you are when you're sick. I might try some of your strategies the next time I find myself ill.
