Me at 8:15am: Hmm, I feel kind of lousy, and I know @sufficientlylargen appears to have come down with the flu, but honestly, I don’t feel that terrible, so of course I should do the 30 minute drive in to work to teach today, just in case I get sicker and have to cancel class later in the week.
Me at 9:00am, half an hour before teaching: *in brain fog hunched over desk * oh God. What was I thinking? I could stare at a blank wall in silence for hours and not notice time passing. Standing is hard. Words are hard.
In other news, I’m going home after teaching. I may also let them go a bit early.
