Today I had lunch with an old friend who hadn’t seen me in a while. When she saw, me she immediately said, “Hey, you look pale, are you alright?”
My eyes started to shine with glee.
She asked, “are you okay? Um, yes, I said I think there is a flu bug going around my office.” My response was a bit strange because I answered her with a big goofy smile-not typical of someone who has the flu.
Looking pale is not easy for a black girl. So maybe, just maybe, this is a good sign, right? I’m feeling slightly feverish today but since I don’t chart, it is hard for me to be sure what all of this really means.
