me: Hello, boss' secretary? This is Mary Christine.
me: Yes, I won't be coming in today. I am quite sick.
me: You can't hear me because I don't have a voice, but trust me, I am too sick to come in.
her: Who is this?
me: I will send you an e-mail.
This is a calling-in-sick post. I am too sick to even post anything. I have got an aching head, a running nose, a bottle brush stuck in my throat, and even a fever.
Still grateful to be sober, but I can't even read the small print of the big book today, so no quote.
