Sick not [sic]


The Latin adverb sic used in brackets after a copied or quoted word that appears odd or erroneous to show that the word is quoted exactly as it stands in the original, as in a story must hold a child’s interest and “enrich his [ sic ] life.”. That is not what is going on here.

Monday morning, my neighbor mentioned that his daughter was home sick and that there were a lot of kids out of school for 3-4 days. Tuesday evening my throat was sore and my glands were a bit swollen. Wednesday, yeah, I’m sick, but not so bad that I can’t work through it and sleep when I get home. Which I did. Today. Well, today started out pretty well with the help of some DayQuil, but by 11:00 am I was decided on going home. I’m not dying, but I am most definitely sick. I’m just thankful that this is happening before Christmas and not during.

I had my flu shot, so I’m pretty confident that this isn’t the flu. And based on consultation with the best medical experts available on Google Images; It’s just a cold.

I have 3 of 5 on the COLD list and just 1 of 5 on the FLU list, that one being a headache. Which I assume is because my sinuses feel like they’ve swollen to fill my entire head. Hot tea and sleep, along with a steady stream of cold medicine, is the plan for the rest of the evening.
