I woke up early this morning with a raging sore throat. And it feels like one tonsil is swollen up to the size of a scratchy, searing hot grapefruit. Hot coffee makes it feel better as long as I am drinking it. As soon as I’m done it’s back to uncomfortableness. I know it sounds like a fantastic reason to stay home from work and knit but since the rest of the people I work with are in the Seattle office, I don’t have to worry about them catching any germs. So here I am. Hopefully I’ll feel better by this evening.
