I got a speeding ticket on my way to work this morning. I was at a stop light, I'd been stuck behind someone poking along (now I know why they were doing that), and I was irritated and late to work. So when the light changed, I hauled ass. Unfortunately, there was a motorcycle cop just up the road, and he pulled me over. I was going 49 in a 30 (I didn't think my car had that much pick-up to it), but he only wrote the ticket for 40 in a 30. He was nice about it, and he told me I could take defensive driving and get it dismissed (which I already knew, but appreciated him telling me all the same). So I can either pay the fine ($175) or take defensive driving ($95 for court costs plus whatever the course costs). Guess I'll be taking defensive driving. At least I can use that to get a discount on my car insurance. But what a way to start off the day, huh?!
I still feel like crap. I almost don't care what the ENT does or recommends, as long as it HELPS. I'm tired of feeling like my head is stuffed with oatmeal. I'm tired of my ears needing to pop. I'm tired of sneezing and sniffling and snotting and coughing. I just want to feel decent again.
I did read something interesting last night. One of my co-workers has also been sick, and she said someone told her that Vitamin C has antihistamine properties. Being of inquisitive mind, I thought I'd look and see for myself. And I found some sites with information that suggests that Vitamin C, at mega-doses, *does* have antihistamine properties. So I may need to go stock up on orange juice and give it a try (although to get the quantities they were talking about, I'd probably have to take a vitamin supplement - either that, or drink a LOT of orange juice). It can't hurt, can it?
We have a training class this afternoon, on tax issues. The way I feel, that sounds like something to put me right to sleep.
Back to work - I have things that must get done since I won't be in the office tomorrow.
