Today, I'm feverish, headachey and slightly grumpy. Had I felt this way when I left home, I probably wouldn't have, and I certainly would have returned home after my 8am dentist appointment rather than going to work.

Oddly, I'm 90% sure this makes me a bit more pleasant around the office, and especially by email.

My internal tact-meter doesn't so much check "is this a good idea to say?" Rather, it checks, "am I in a good enough mood to deal with the fallout of saying this right now?"

Today, the answer is generally, "could this wait until tomorrow?"

And on the first day of the awful new time-tracking system, too. Guess I'll have to save up snark for later.

Thanks :-)

I should. But I'd feel bad disappointing my wife -- tonight's our final tango lesson out of eight, and she's been awesome about being all supportive when I'm grumpy or intimidated (and the latter happens often -- tango turns out to be a lot of different steps).

So I'm not feeling physically amazing, but I would really like to get the last tango lesson to happen rather than miss it until next tango series, which could be six months or more. If I just don't know how to lead any of these steps, it's not something I can make up on my own later with extra practice.

Expect I'll feel better soon, though. My body's got a great immune system, and very few compunctions about deploying it vigorously.

It would be ok if we skipped tango. Really.

Ok, so it's too late at this point but... wouldn't you have had MORE energy left for tango if you skipped work and went home for a nap (or at least an afternoon of lounging on the couch) to save your energy?

Somewhat. I would have added extra commuting time, though.

But yeah, that would probably have been a better idea if I had been less sick and actually wanted to make it to tango class.

As it turned out, I should probably have gone home earlier, but just not left home for awhile :-)

I made him come home. He is now passed out in bed with a glass of watered down apple juice, a glass of 7-up, and chicken noodle soup on the bedside table.
