Home sick today. Tea, soup, and naps on deck. I’m in my new flannel under my coveted weighted blanket and feeling loved by my husbands chicken soup. I used to get super discouraged whenever I got sick. These days, I like to think of my sick days as upgrades. I’m not sure which part of the internet I read it first but now it’s stuck. So today, I’m home upgrading to Human 37.5. This whole idea reminds me of an alien invasion movie where the aliens couldn’t thrive here because they’d never upgraded their systems to avoid the viruses we have here on earth. Fiction makes myths work. lol And this whole idea makes me smile. It’s kinda silly but it works for me. I’m gunna be over embracing my entire self, weird nerdy parts and all. Please excuse me while I reboot to get the latest antibodies.
