Back at work. Managing to remain mostly vertical, if not terribly productive.

Yesterday, E was telling me about the time when, as a teenager, he spent a month with a fever that fluctuated between 102 and 104. He assured me that there were no "pancakes of brain damage, though."

Me: uh... no pancakes of... brain damage?
E: No. I said no evidence of brain damage.
Me: I distinctly heard you say "pancakes".
E: I don't know what you're talking about.

He thinks he's funny, see.

People think when they're talking to someone who's addled with fever, it's a good time to practice their questionable comedy material. For example, E pointed out that we never hear anyone say "OK, Pigface, this is a very important show. So don't fuck it up." I laughed pretty hard at that one, but I'm not yet well enough to tell if it's really all that funny.

Cough on them.
When they are sweaty and shaking and seeing God, you can show them how funny it is (grins)

I'm snickering here, esp. at the "pancakes" joke.

I laughed at the Pigface line too.

I didn't want to tell you this one until you were on the mend, but one of my other LJ-friends posted this comment recently:

While working at the docs [chiropractor's] office, I came in with a fever one day and he said, "Awesome! That means your immune system is doing what it's supposed to." I didn't get to go home early.

Well, it's a comforting thought. When you're really feverish, you think your body's trying to kill you. Actually, it's just trying to fix you. It's easy to forget that.

"pancakes of brain damage"? i think i'm in love with your husband now too. ;) i'm glad you're feeling better.

Sigh. Take a number ;)

the "too" was in reference to the fact i'm in love with you. E. is awfully cute for a boy, but if i have to get in line i'm getting in the line for you first. ;)

That's hysterical!

Made me audible snort at my desk.

Hehehe, well, I thought it was funny, and I don't *think* I'm running a fever!

Seriously, though, I hope you feel better soon. Take care of yourself! *hugs*

Hey, I laughed.

Be careful with my friend fenriss, please.

I hope you feel well soon.

It's so hard sometimes to tell if you're sick or just exhausted.

I would read that Pigface comment after having had my desk/cube moved next to the client. Hilarious. The best is still the beer comment.

"OK, Pigface, this is a very important show. So don't fuck it up."

Hmmm... People tell ME that all the time...
May. 27th, 2005 04:13 pm (UTC)

Yes, it was fucking hilarious.
