What have I done so far these holidays? Hmm, let me think. I was down with the flu even before the holidays started. On Friday, the last day of the school term, we had our own Hari Guru celebrations.
As usual I was entrusted with the ordeal of reading out the annual speech sent to us by the Minister of Education and the Director of Education. This year I was given Hisham's speech which was 25 pages long. Just imagine a 25 page speech to be read to school children who came more for the games and concert.
I do not know if the people in the ministry know it or not but almost all schools do their own editing of these speeches, so mine, the 25 page torture tool was decimated to a mere 5.
Immediately after giving my speech, I got the permission of the PK Petang to go to the clinic because it was getting just too unbearable. Yup, the doc gave me pills for almost everything you could think off, no, no Viagra, and an mc.
Considering that I had not had a bite to eat that day, I stopped at the KFC outlet a few doors away from the clinic for some nuggets. I was not too steady and spilled the drinks all over me. I was too sick to feel embarrassed. I ate the 6 piece nugget and left.
I got back to school and asked to be excused for the rest of the evening and the PK Petang sportingly allowed me to, considering that I could be quite a heavy load should there be a need to carry me away. Yes, I missed the jamuan and the games and the concert.
I got home, took the medicines and went to bed. When I got up a few hours later, I found that my handphone, a 3 month old Nokia N95, my pride and joy, my source of countless hours of music, refused to come out of its self imposed slumber. Evidently, when I spilled the drinks, a lot of water found its way into the pouch. Hey if you hate me, drown me, not my prized possession. Its about the only thing expensive that I allow myself to be pampered with. The warranty does not cover death by drowning so I am waiting with bated breath as to how much the resuscitation process would cost me.
Actually, I had to cancell my trip for KL to meet blogger friends on the 24th because of some pressing family commitment. My condition screwed everything up. Even if I had not cancelled the trip earlier, I would have to do so because of that pain in the butt flu.
Saturday and Sunday were spent at home, mostly in bed and occasionally at the computer. I had so much sleep in the day time that every night I would get up at about 3 and just sat on the sofa doing nothing. Once in a while I would surf but there was just nowhere to go.
Last night I was up at 4 and am still awake now. I have finished my course of antibiotics and the sleep inducing pills for flu and only now am I feeling a little bit better. I am working up a little bit of sweat and am looking forward to starting the holidays.
What do I have in store? Considering that the trip to KL is cancelled, I guess its hours and hours of doing nothing. It beats hours and hours in bed with the flu, anytime.
