Sick Day

Yesterday after I hit publish on my blog post I felt something coming on. Sure enough,today I woke up feeling like crap, and after keeping my head up through my 9:30 class I decided it was time to honor my body and go home. I haven’t been sick in almost two years so this fatigued head cold really is knocking me down. But really, what is the point of sitting in class, barely able to focus, passing the germs around? No point.

Someone was very excited when I came home at 11 am…

Actually, she looks suspicious in that picture. Oh well.

Mid day I emerged from my couch to get some sick essentials.

Does anyone else remember these? I remember them coming in a box and I would eat them all the time when I was sick (and even when I wasn’t sick!)

I remember them looking like this:


So yummy. I also stopped by Jerry’s Deli for matzoh ball soup.

Obviously this sick day fave came with bagel chips…

Bonus: I flirted my way into a free ginger ale from the counter man at Jerry’s. Left Coast FTW!

Besides ginger ale I enjoyed another sick day favorite: tea!

My mom makes the best honey tea ever. I might have to have some before bed. Of course it isn’t the same when I make it but its worth a shot.

I am starting to feel a little bit better and I hope to be at 70% tomorrow. I hate missing school. I know the golden nugget of wisdom that will make or break exam season isn’t going to happen tomorrow but I hate missing class. I also have a really busy weekend with a 10k and many Halloween events so I hope I was able to head this cold off at the pass today. Fingers crossed please!

  2. So Jerry’s Famous Deli just happens to be my absolute favorite restaurant and I’m drooling over that bowl of matzo ball soup.

    Being Jewish, matzo ball soup is my soul food lol. Also, the perfect remedy for a cold. A fine choice if you ask me 😉

  3. Yes, I miss the boxed Luden’s! I wondered why they stopped selling them like that.

    Feel better! And watch some Dawson’s Creek for me today! 😉 They only play it mid-day now.

  4. I used to LOVE Luden’s! Also, that soup looks amazing. Would you believe I’ve never had matzo ball soup? I think you may have just convinced me to try it.

    Nice job flirting your way into a ginger ale. And when you’re sick, too! I’m impressed.

    Feel better!
