I’ve been sick for the last two weeks with a horrible virus. It was bad enough to have a dodgy tummy and a sore throat but I also had terrible headaches that affected my vision so I couldn’t read properly and (shock – horror) go online. Bit of a nightmare, actually.
And of course, being Queen of the Worriers that I am I started obsessing about the headaches being due to having a latent head injury from my fall in November even though I’ve had all the tests and scans and stuff and they’ve revealed that everything is fine; but y’know, when you’re a worrier sometimes you look for things to worry about.
Anyhoo, I feel a lot better now and amused myself by looking through the Urban Dictionary to see if I could find a clever title for this post. I didn’t find a title but what I did find is that the word sick has a variety of meanings. Check this out –
It can mean:
1. to feel ill, or not well.
2. A secondary word for awesome.
3. Gross, disgusting.
4. Tired, pissed off.
1. I feel very sick, I think I might vomit.
2. Dude, that song is so sick!
3. That was sick when he had sex with that gorilla.
4. I am sick of your attitude.
5. Who wants to get sick with me.
I knew of all the variations on sick except for number 5. I had no idea it could mean horny. That could be awkward if you go to the doctor because you are feeling sick and you get a hipster doctor who regularly reads the Urban Dictionary and is down with all the lingo. And when he asks you what’s wrong you say : ‘I feel sick. I’ve been feeling sick for days. I’m so sick I think I might lose my mind.’
Slightly embarrassing….. I don’t think doctors should read the Urban Dictionary.
To celebrate feeling better I thought I’d post some of my favourite photos taken recently. It’s great to be back and headache free….
