Work stress (we’re closing an issue) + lack of sleep (thanks to my Sadako) + getting drenched in the rain (thanks to my forgetful brain, which recently forgot to remind me to bring an umbrella) = sick. For the past couple of days, I’ve been suffering from a headache, some body ache, watery eyes, and a runny nose. It’s the last one that I hate the most. At work and in public, I can’t help but sniff as if I just watched “Wish Ko Lang.” It’s also a challenge making sure I get to cover my mouth with a hanky whenever I sneeze (and remember to say “excuse me”), which happens every five minutes or so. Oh well, at least I don’t have a clogged nose. I’d lose more sleep if I had that.

Now you have to excuse me as I have to get me some tissue and blow my nose. I just watched tonight’s episode of “Endless Love” and that scene with Marian Rivera and Tirso Cruz III just made me well up.
