...is that you can't take medication.
Today I am hosting an information luncheon at work. I am responsible for setting up and tearing down the tables/chairs, handing out information, making sure everything goes well with the caterer, and doing a 20 minute presentation. We are expecting at least 50 people.
Wouldn't you know it, that yesterday afternoon I started feeling like I was getting sick. I did everything I could to avoid it (vitamins, vegetable juice [Rod swears by this], and tried to get lots of sleep). During the night I developed a fever which has not gone away yet and it is 8:15AM.
Normally in a situation like this, I would dope up on some good cold meds to make it through my presentation. But, all I am allowed to take is Tylenol and it surely isn't helping. So, I am going to go set up (since most of the stuff is in my car) and then beg someone else to do my presentation for me because a group of people will definitely not be able to understand my presentation between all the sneezing and coughing. After I suffer through that I will be back home and in bed for the rest of the day!
