Down With The Sickness

Filed under: Humor — missedmanners @ 12:10 pm


I’ve been living under a blanket on my couch all week.

Well, not all week. I went to Boston on Wednesday for what will forever be called the WORST day of travel in the history of Man. I’ll post that on Monday.

This is what I’ve got:

The Norwalk Flu

Not fun. You know the kind of stomach flu where you lay around and just moan out loud? That was me. I won’t pain you with the gory details, but let’s just say that several of my orifices have become high-traffic exits the likes of which would make The Exorcist proud.

I’m finally eating solids and moving around with little to no bow-leggedness (on account of all the shivering huddling I’ve been doing).

Anyone else come down with this gem of a disease?



  1. Mmm…Norwalk. Mmmmm. I remember roughly nothing about it.

  2. I’m sorry you’ve been so sick. Glad you’re recovering. Judging from the Norwalk description, you need to stay away from those places where you’ve apparently been sharing cookies and milk with cute but germ-laden toddlers.

  4. Heh, I briefly worked on the defense side of a class action suit against one of my local hotels that arose out of an outbreak of Norwalk virus. A $25.2 million dollar punitive damage judgment was entered against the hotel, but it was later overturned on appeal.

    Anyhoo, make a list of the restaurants you ate in last weekend, see if there are newspaper reports about other people getting sick, and look for a lawyer. It might not turn out to have been such a bad week after all.

  5. Ah! Gidget! Thanks for the update.
    You know I did actually start feeling ill RIGHT after I had this horrendous breakfast sandwich on the train to Boston, but I still wrote it up to getting it from my boss who’d been sick the week before.

    I also got my roommate sick, which I felt REALLY bad about. 😦

  6. This sounds like the norovirus that has been torturing us out here in CA. It is not fun and can be fatal! My sympathies.
