So I was a little bummed yesterday because a game I’ve been looking forward to came out (BioShock) and I had decided I shouldn’t spend the money on it until I get paid on Friday. It was only going to be a few days but still kind of a bummer. But I was happy because I got a copy of Silent Hill 2 in the mail from Goozex which I could play (this will be my third attempt at the game: I’m determined to like it because every other SH game has been excellent but I have yet to find a way to get into this and many, many people claim it is the best of the whole series).
But then, because my wife rocks, she surprised me with a copy of BioShock when I got home.
Yet somewhere late in my work day I had started feeling a little under the weather. Then I started feeling a lot under the weather on the drive home and by the time I got in the house and ate dinner I was feeling pretty rough. It was so bad in fact that after dinner I watched a couple of episodes of Lingo with Nik, as is our custom, and then decided to completely ignore both new games in favor of going to bed early.
It’s pretty telling, I think.
I still didn’t feel that hot this morning but since I’m about to take some time off and they just changed the schedule around to accommodate my preferences, I felt it would be pretty rude to call in sick. So I decided to try and tough it out. Fortunately I’m feeling a little better than I was this morning but I still have that nagging “I’m on the verge of a flu” sensation which I think is mostly being held back by the seven or eight Motrin I popped on my way out the door.
I tease, of course. I took half of one and fell asleep almost instantly in the entryway of our home.
This has nothing to do with anything, but I thought it was really cool.
