It really, really sucks.
Carl blames my constant air conditioning and refusal to sleep; I blame all the non-mouth covering plane passengers. Cover your mouth, people. Did you not go to preschool??
Working while sick sucks. You can’t call out for the sniffles, but handling a baby while fighting a virus is ethically questionable. I usually opt for any jobs that don’t involve babies, and wear my surgical mask whenever possible. the surgical mask is actually kind of cool in Japan.
Pros of sniffles: chicken noodle soup and an excuse to snuggle up with a book. I’m loving the multi-dimensional East of Eden. My cat is loving every minute of all day naps.
