Sense, Sensibility, Stomach Aches, and Security Guards

tumblr_inline_mprmb6xNRI1qz4rgptoday was a very confusing day…
ya know what i hate?
you know what i haaaaaaaattttteeeeee?
being sick at work.
hell being sick period.
i woke up today and i felt so out of it.
wasn’t i like just sick?
my immune system needs an upgrade.
my head felt like it was filling up with helium.
my stomach tho?
boy was my stomach showing the fuck out.
i don’t know if the detox bath i took yesterday had anything to do with it,
but i felt like i was gonna faint on the way too work.
a couple times i had to catch myself.
talk to myself.
play a game with myself.
anything from being “that guy” sprawled out in a train car.

tumblr_mqgayygagi1su7sauo1_500work was no better.
didn’t help that thing 2 called out.
apparently a couple people also called out as well.
there is some “stomach virus” going around.
so it wasn’t the detox bath i reckon?
maybe it caused it to come out more?
i dunno.
all i know is i had to do her work as well as my own.
oh yeah.
uh huh.
looking at the computer felt like everything was zoomed in.
i had to get up at one point and take a walk.
of course she made some mistakes that i had to fix as well.
don’t tell her.
halfway through the day,
i received this text:

“hey j.
this is __________ the night guard.
i wanted to invite you over to my crib after work.
i’m having a small shindig and wanted you to come through.
let me know and i’ll text you my address.”

tumblr_inline_n2zvbhRhNu1qgcwnpyou see that shit?
oh yeah i forgot to tell ya…
i gave him my number one night off the random.
i was feeling brave and high off permanent markers.
i wanted to see how it went before i blogged about it.
he never texted me and i started seeing him less.
“eh bye.” – my response.
well i had two options:

go to his house,
feeling like run over shit,
and try to put on a brave face while in his face.


text him,
tell him i can’t make it,
and reschedule for another time.

you already know what i chose.
he told me to get better and he’ll invite me over another time.

    I hope you feel better! I thought I was the only one who felt this way when I was sick! lol. That moment when you have to negotiate with your body to not give out on you in front of company.

      it was a mental battle this morning.
      i pulled out my phone,
      tried to play that damn game with the flying bird,
      and about 2 secs later I said fuck it.

    Drink alot of fluids and Gatorade. That’ll help flush it out….otherwise rest up and get well to stay on that dude’s radar. He’s def interested and wants u to be on his court w/ the home advantage. Next time go for the dunk and u may get some OT w/ him lol
