The wrong time to be sick
So I've been getting sick for a couple weeks now but a few days ago it decided to explode into its full potential. My nose began to run without ceasing and I started coughing things all over the place and my voice is all crocky and disgusting. So I broke down and went to the health center. Fortunately our school is only mildly freaked about the swine flu ( total lie I have gotten 4 emails about it in the past two days) I arrived there and was greeted by a girl in a mask who asked if I had any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, sore throat, or vomiting. Now my question is why on earth would visit the health center if I didn't have any of those symptoms! so of course I answered yes and then was required to sanitize my hands and put on a lovely mask and went into the waiting room. I sat for forty minutes breathing my already used air creating a swamp atmosphere in my dumb mask. The worst part being that I could not deal with my fountain of snot or any of the things I was coughing up because I was not allowed to take off the stupid mask, a major design flaw! Then finally was called in and told I have a cold, just your average cold... so there goes an hour of my life and my dignity! thanks a lot swine flu!
