I think I'm noticing a pattern here. Every time I have a break from work (summer, winter, spring), I start it off being sick as a big ol' sick dawg. "Why?" I wonder. Well, I think I've got it figured out. Pretty sure I string myself out at work, unknowingly of course. It's not that I don't have plenty of sick days saved up that I could take off work if I needed to...I think it's that I don't want to spend the hours it takes to write thorough lesson plans describing each and every little thing that will likely come up for an unknowing sub. So, I figure my immune system just patiently waits till there's ample time for me to chill out and be sick...and then it caves.
Yup, I think it's totally one of my teacher super powers. Able to beat down cooties in a single bound...until I have some time off, that is.
