Day 152: Still Alive and Kicking…Just Not Very High or Fast

Still under the weather but I think that the worst is past.  Or maybe it’s just the sunshine and slightly warmer temperatures that we have today.  Right now, however, I’d just like to crawl into bed and under the covers and sleep a couple of days.  I haven’t been warm since I got sick with this cold.  I used to be very warm natured but over the last few years, my internal thermostat got flipped.  If it gets below 75°, I begin to shiver.  One of my coworkers and I have thermostat wars every day, all year long.  She is determined to keep the temperature below 70°.  And, on top of that, my office is the coldest one here.  So, even when it’s 105° outside, I’m dressed for winter.  And, rather than dress cooler or maybe even layer her clothing, my coworker dresses in single layer warm outfits.  Oh, and we aren’t allowed to have space heaters in our offices.  Well, screw that!  I have a tiny one that is easy to hide just in case the corporate safety director happens to show up unexpectedly.  You have to take care of things yourself sometimes…even if it means breaking the rules.  Plus, I’m the branch safety coordinator so I know all about safety.  It’s my job.  My little heater is specially made so that it will not trip a breaker because it has its own tiny fuse that will blow first and it’s plugged into a surge protector.  So, I have it covered.  Well, that was a bit of a tangent.  Sorry, but not feeling well has brought out my petty side.  So I think I’ll close for now and go do that crawl into bed and under the covers thing.
