Typically, I pride myself on having an incredibly in tact immune system. I get a bad cold once a year and maybe, maybe some sniffles at some other season change - But I don't get the flu (this is a FACT), and I don't ever get sick otherwise (my stomach is lined with steel, another fact that I test on a regular basis..).
Which leads to the exceptionally confusing situation of me being sick.
What the cuss.
I already had a bad cold. I already carried my cup of tea around like it was affixed to my hand permanently. I already took days off from riding to "watch" P get worked by the BO while I inhaled cough drops like they were skittles.
Which makes this current scratchy throat, achy-crap totally unacceptable. (oh, and it also makes me sorta cranky)
So, yet again I will be heading to the barn (finally! it's been 4 days) with my tea affixed to my hand in an attempt to ride. I already gave the BO a heads up that my brain might explode (along with my back) if P needs a hard ride, but if a soft easy session is in order, I'm up for it.
Waaaah, I'm tired, and cranky, and might have consumed an unhealthy amount of Constant Comment Tea... But, I get to see the mareface today! Which makes it a pretty good day in my book...
