Strep Throat

Strep throat is not my idea of a good time. It really changes one’s plans. I do not have time to get sick. I can’t go in to work for two days. As a teacher, being out of the classroom is often harder than going in even when you are sick. Writing sub plans is time consuming but because I was contagious for the first 24 hours going to school wasn’t even a possibility. On top of that all my other plans have been canceled: no backpacking this weekend, no movie about grassroots projects, no dinner after work with friends.

Although being sick isn’t always fun, there are some perks:

1)Pajamas-you have a real reason to wear them ALL DAY!

2)T.V.-Catch up on old episodes of your favorite shows

3)No dish duty-Remember,you’re sick. It would be a bad idea to breathe all over the dirty dishes,right?

4)Comfort food-You get to eat whatever makes you feel better, whether it is soup or popsicles.

What are some other perks to being sick?





  1. staying under the covers and reading books. doing crosswords puzzles- getting caught up on lesson plans and correcting papers- sleeeeeeeeeppppppppinggg

  2. Getting sick for me, like a sniffly nose, stomach problems, sore throats, and a fever isn’t fun for me either! All I can do is be in bed, that’s not fun either!

  3. I like how you ended your blog with a question. One fun thing is playing on electronics.

  4. When I am sick I love catching up on shows and watching classic Disney movies. Those are the best part of being sick!

    Very good way of asking the reader a question to think of. And adding a list. Plus my favorite perk is being able to boss people around and sleep all day.
