True Story: I missed my last day of work

Yeah…it happened.

When this SHOULD have been happening:


It’s so ironic because much of my life I’ve been quite sick (“in the head” – I can hear my mom saying that in my mind…she’s always saying shit in my head. Damnit!).

Anyway, I missed my last day of work. I was stoked to resign, excited to take care of myself and my health, and of course in a hilarious very typical turn of events I ended up sick with a virus and viral vertigo.

Even if I wanted to drag my sorry useless ass into work I couldn’t physically drive to get my weak little body to work.



Plus, it rained all freakin’ week! Rain actually gives me headaches, no joke. I have my problems.

Also, when I have vertigo things get extra weird. My brain is already highly unusual as is, but to make matters worse I get oddly fixated on certain things and some things really freak me out. A great example is the Snuggles teddy bear. One question: WHY? It is so creepy! Does anyone else agree with me?! That bear is on some serious crack or something, I’m telling you. Of course that commercial was on ALL THE DAMN TIME and of course it was during the time I was in the worst throes of vertigo getting all emo and depressed — and then freaking out thanks to creepy weird snugglebear.

But really: know it’s up to something.

END OF TANGENT: And so, every day this week I have emailed my boss a one or two sentence statement that basically sums up to “still dying, hope to see you tomorrow!”. Let’s hope/pray that I actually can make it in tomorrow…time will tell!

  1. Oh my word. I’m so sorry that you’ve had such a rough week. I know it is anything but a laughing matter but I loved this post so much. The cartoons and captions made me laugh at 6am, one of the best blogs I’ve ever read!

    I hope you’re better today and that you’re jumping through the office windows by 3pm! Classic Alex is my kinda girl!!
