A.K.A Rules For When I'm Sick

I've been under the weather since we got back from Dallas on Monday.  I don't know why but it seems like people have wanted to have these long, lengthy, conversations with me since I got sick.  I have also realized that I HATE holding conversations with people when I'm sick.  So, here are a few rules for interacting with me when I'm sick.

If  you see me sitting in the corner of waiting room at the dance studio instead of my normal spot, this means that I'm sick.  You can come over, say "Hi", exchange pleasantries, and we can converse for a couple minutes.  When I start looking at my phone that is your cue to walk away.  I'm betting I have already told you I am very sick and that is the reason I have put myself in the corner, to stay by myself and not get anyone sick.  

I don't want to talk about how team works, I don't want to tell you about the summer schedule, I don't want to debate over my views on recital pictures and my views on the recital itself, I don't want to talk!  {Can you tell I had to deal with this??!!??}  My problem is that I'm not 'sick enough'.  I don't have a hacking cough every 2 minutes, I'm not sniffling and blowing my nose every 2 seconds, I am a functioning adult who feels like crap. 

Why do people feel the need to use these days to chat up a storm and invade my bacteria-ridden space?  I'm trying to get work done, and make it through the rest of the evening.  I don't want to be here and if I had a choice I wouldn't.  

So next time you see me, huddled in the corner chair, looking miserable.  Say "hello!", and then walk away.
