The longest way (Snot Insurmountable)*

It's officially day seven of the illness.

I thought I was starting to get better. I woke up at 7 a.m., coughing a bit, but my perpetual headache was finally gone.

But when I got up at 8 a.m. to go to the bathroom, I discovered that my entire pajama top was soaked in sweat and there was a fingerprint like rash on my chest. Returning to my bed, I realized that my sheets and duvet were also soaked with sweat.

The house is freezing.


It's afternoon now, and the rash is gone, and I'm trying to convince myself the illness is too. I'm bored of laying in bed all day. This is midterm week, and I don't have time to be sick.

Now if only my body would catch up with my mind.

  1. I think after seven days an illness should graduate to become a pestilence.
