Ack! Is It The Flu?

Despite my trypanophobia, (thank you, Dr. Google!) I found myself in the CVS pharmacy a few weeks ago, being brave and getting my first ever flu shot. The last time I was sick, I missed nearly a week of work. I didn't want to repeat that scenario again this year. Sexy Nerd was feeling miserable and missed work on Tuesday, so I was extra pleased with my smart flu shot choice.

Lousy sore throat. I drank some green tea with honey and ignored it.

Stupid sinus pressure. Must be allergies.

Get out of here, you dumb fever!

The shot appears to have been for nothing. My boss and coworkers pushed me right out the door today, even though I insisted I was fine. You know, with the exception of those symptoms listed above. And the mild (mild!) dizzy spells that have left me stabilizing myself against the wall for the past couple of days.

Drat.
I'm too cheap to go along quietly with missing hours at work, but after drinking a little Theraflu Maximum Strength, I must admit I'm feeling kinda nifty. It makes me want to sleep, but where's the sense in sipping a giant beverage before bed?

I blame this on you, Sexy Nerd, and all your yucky germs.

On a much more positive note, a certain someone mentioned above was very sweet and brought me a Starbucks Venti Salted Caramel Mocha Frappuccino Light (soooo freaking delicious and soothing for a sore throat!) before I was booted from work this morning. He must have known that it was too late for me and my immune system and that, clearly, it was all his fault.

Also, the Starbucks site lists the Salted Caramel Mocha Frappuccino and something called a Salted Caramel Chocolate Creme Frappuccino. What's the difference? Has anyone out there tried every kind of Frappuccino?

And my Peppermint Mochas never have chocolate chips on top like the photo, gosh darn it! Though, wouldn't they just get jammed inside the straw anyway?
