I worked only two half-day assignments this week. Took myself off the sub list for today to go out and find me some drugs for the hacking-cough-flemmy-loogie thing that’s going around.
Several people I know have had it for a month or more. At Claudette's suggestion I tried Mucinex-D and seems to get me through the night and the next morning. I just hope it gets me through four subbing assignments starting Monday.
I would have taken myself off the list for the next week, but a teacher actually begged me to take her class for two days. She insisted they were a great class.
Wanting to say "no", I agreed figuring I'd still have the rest of the week off.
Then I get a call the next day at home from another teacher at the same school: "I know you're already subbing for Ms. F on Mon/Tues so can I have you for Wed/Thur?"
Now how is it going to look at this point if I already said "yes" to one and "no" to her friend?
So now I'm working MOST of next week and counting pills to see if I can make it through to next Friday.
I wonder how many boxes of the stuff I can buy before the government thinks I’m a PCP chemist?
