sparkly vampires and a cold

I thought my readers might enjoy this story, well, not the cold part, but the sparkly vampire part. I'm currently battling a cold, probably like half of you are. I had a sore throat for 4 days. On the fifth day the sore throat finally went away but caughing was really really bad. So today, the 6th day, I'm stuffy and am having trouble talking. This normally wouldn't be a problem, except that I work in IT on a helpdesk. So I answer the phone all day long and try to help people with pc problems. As you can imagine, as the day has worn on, it has gotten harder and harder for me to talk. My throat feels fine, but my voice goes in and out.

So, I'm sitting here teasing one of my co-workers about sparkly vampires. At this point it's just a joke, I mention it often throughout the day just to bug him. haha! (my favorite is to text him pictures of Pattison as Edward, or send him links to picturse on IM) I got to thinking...if I was a sparkly vampire, I wouldn't ever have a cold again! So I decided to share this with him. His response you ask? You just want Edward to bite you. lol! But really...wouldn't it be nice to never have a cold again?

I will say, though, that we have some really nice people that call us. I was going to have to walk one lady through installing a program from the internet. I knew I would never be able to get through it. I tried to control to her pc but the stupid program didn't work right. So I finally just told her I would email her the directions so she could try it herself, since it would be too hard for me to get through it with my voice. But..if she had trouble to please call back and somebody else could help her. She didn't complain at all. She even emailed me and told me that it all went great and she was back up and working. See...some people are nice.

I hope you are feeling better, Kris!

Literary Feline - Thanks! I'm on the mend, still bad, but getting better. I ended up staying home yesterday, I woke up and could barely talk - I knew I would never make it at work. I had planned to read a lot, but was too lazy. haha! I ended up watching tv all day.

Sometimes watching TV is all I can manage when I'm miserable sick. :-) Take care of yourself and I hope you feel better soon.

Not too crazy about the idea of being a vampire whose bite is practically poisonous. Wouldn't mind being sparkly though!

Feel better soon!
