File Under "Silver Linings"

Sure, being sick at work sucks like a singularity, but I did find a way to use it to my advantage.

Yesterday, Fearless Leader called me in to her office to go over my personal job goals for, literally, the fourth time this year (#1 goal - make it through the day without strangling someone - so far, so good). As I walked up to her office, I coughed a couple times right outside her door. She asked me if I was catching a cold, to which I responded, in my best "stuffy head" voice, that I already had a cold. After closing her door, I coughed again & told her that she probably didn't want to be in a small, enclosed office with me for too long. "We'll make this quick," she said.

I was out of there in fifteen minutes.
