Well, here's an old philosophy. Make the best of the situation. While I have no pressing inclination to plaster a smile on, I feel that there are numerous ways to make an afternoon kneeling in front of the toilet a bit more thrilling. My favorite is dramatics. Though a nameless flu virus is not much fun, a scene from a raw indie flick about drug addiction is quite dramatic. Thus, I turned on some random industrial background music and attempted to give my best off screen performance. I trembled feverishly as I sat on the cold bathroom tiles, reflecting on my wasted youth. Then I got bored, turned the music off, and brushed my teeth repeatedly.
It's 12:15 and I feel considerably better. I should be back tomorrow.
