i've been so away from blogging that it feels like my blog's a haunted house already, online cobwebs and all, piling up virtual dust made of dead blog skin cells. cough! cough! that makes me the resident lezombie. hehe. i might soon be a real one if i don't get well this week. *here comes the great big excuse* i have been sick for three weeks now. shocking but true. dyosa man, nagkakasakit din. now you know. hehe. i had colds, body ache, teary eyes for two weeks. more like on the brink of a flu, so i still went to work. on the first few days of the third week, i got well. and was i soo happy i hugged myself. *mukha lang naka-straight jacket. nabaliw sa saya* :) latter part of last week, my throat decided to constrict and sore like a betrayed lover/survivor *think aleli arroyo and kc montero*. i started to breathe asthmatic and my left tonsil, fed with my misery, grew bigger. for a millisecond and a few minutes i felt how it's like to be eve with adam's apple literally. if i were a male gay then, i'd be sore as hell because i can't perform bj, much more swallow the fruit's juice of my labor. what an epic performance fail. if you know what i mean.my family has asthma history which managed to skip me thankfully. but my breathlessness and wheezing started to worry me. that asthma, with all the running craze, may have finally caught me in adult life. blasted fad.i also have cough, but i don't cough. i have few phlegms (eww i know) that seem to be glued on my chest. if i could just push my arm inside my throat and scrape them off i would, but sad to say, am not that dexterous. so i finally went to the hospital the other day in the hope to find a dexterous doctor. hehehe. i had with me my prolonged sickness and the catcher in the rye book. when the doctor saw my book, he simply said, classic. i instantly like this doctor. :) he made me open up wide and "aaah" several times. that's when i realized my bj dreams (if i ever had one) is over. because i almost vomited each time his stick enters mine. *err, did i just unintentionally slipped an innuendo there? :D let not your imagination go there. it's literally a wooden stick. ok, i should have not said the wood. not helping. hehe. * going back to my throat and the doc's stick. hahaha. there it goes again. that's what sick people do. think sick thoughts. hehehe. anyhoo, the good doctor concluded i just normally have bigger left tonsil than the usual. you know, the same manner your right breast is bigger than your left. you can fondle one more often to make it bigger. it's not like i can fondle my tonsils for chrissake. :D he gave me two prescriptions. one for my meds (cough and colds) and the other book recommendations. mygawd. if he wasn't obese and if i weren't gay, i'd think he's flirting. hahaha. the bibliophile doc name dropped arlene j. chai who penned "eating fire and drinking water." and raved about the book "the good earth". i will definitely check those out once am well and my wallet's refilled. :)

ps. after taking the meds for two days, i now have a bona fide cough. because i am coughing my guts and phlegm out (no need for scraping). i did not go to work today for fear of coughing out the rest of my internal organs in the office. i don't want them to know all my secrets, like my blood's rainbow-colored. enjoy rainy, monday! =)
