My New Boss

It started to tug at me last night, although I refused to acknowledge it. This morning, it woke me early, but again, I pretended it wasnt there, because if you ignore it, it might just go away....it didn't. So I got up and showered and did my hair and makeup, because when I was younger, my parents told me I would feel better if I followed those steps....they lied. By 10am, I was back in bed...with the flu.
I lay there all day, not moving, trying to breathe shallow, because the made me move even less....muting Oprah, because I couldn't even stand the sound of her voice. I felt so sick, that my best friend chocolate seemed like the enemy.
But I knew it would come, and it came. A call from my new boss....she was in town, and wanted to get together. I put on my best retail voice and agreed, and met her. We spent four hours talking like old friends, excited about the future and sharing stories of the past. She is cool...and during that time, I felt no sickness....thank God....I prayed that I could make it thru and I did.
As I walked in the door, my body felt like it had been hit by a truck...and I know I need to eat, but just cant even think about food.
So I am going to bed now...and am gonna try to breathe shallow.
