After I had written my test, which I ended up passing, I came down with a flu. It was pretty nasty. At least I wasn't puking all over the place. Not a stomach flu thank god. My temperture got soared and I got really delirious. My throat hurt real bad and couldn't eat anything or barely talk. 4 days later I felt good. My next test is this friday. Yesterday I got up and left the house met up with my best friend and enjoyed $10 pitchers of beer accompanied by 10 cent wings. Teriyaki, Honey garlic, hot sauce, Thai, salt and pepper, along with 4 different dipping sauces, ranch, blue cheese, and I forgot what the other two were. mmmmm.... wings.
Now I'm hungry for wings. Damn. After being sick for so long and being able to just enjoy get out there and enjoy myself. It's great. After I passed my test I got a Duotang full of comprehensive safety stuff I have to learn for next test. If I pass that one, I get a test of strength which involves Latching. You use this 50lb 20foot metal bar on these large metal containers full of shit from boats. Also went out downtown and found things on to buy list: Dawn of the Dead 4 disc set, and Scarface dvd: comes in a leather/vinyl box, which is lined with velvet, and the dvd in the metal case, money clip and some other crap that makes me want to spend money on it.
Beer and wings are a very good thing to eat after getting over the flu.
I suppose I should mention that the stomach flu has nothing to do with the influenza virus.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention said:
Influenza, also called "the flu", is caused by viruses that infect the respiratory tract. Flu symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, headache, muscle aches, and extreme fatigue. Although nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea sometimes occur during a flu infection, such symptoms are rarely prominent. "Stomach flu" is a misnomer sometimes used to describe gastrointestinal illnesses that are actually caused by other microorganisms.
