pity party for 1

fever this morning: 101.3
cab ride to the doctor because there was no way I was braving the subway: $12.14
minutes spent in the waiting room: 72
number of docs I saw: 3 (if you count the PA)
number of times I said, "I think I have strep throat": at least 4
number of strep tests they did: 2
throat pain on a scale of 1 to 10: 7
co-pay: $25
cab ride back home: $14 something
prescription: $10 (not bad)
number of times they played the same 5 Christmas carols in the waiting room and at the pharmacy: too many to count
ice cream for the throat: $5
gatorade: $2

the rising feeling that a good date begets illness or injury: priceless (unfortunately)

I am so sorry! Being sick in the city is never, never fun. Please feel better soon.

Poor you! Hope you feel better. Get plenty of rest and take care of yourself! Although, it sounds like you are with the ice cream and gatorade (two SUPER important items).
