"This is really stupid. I'm not sick, so I hate to come in..." because you know I'm going to touch something germy and get sick, it happens every time, "but this is so weird and so annoying. It's been going on since Sunday night. I even called my dad who's a nurse to see if he thought I had a stroke! He says my throat looks a little red, but it doesn't hurt. My only symptoms are seasonal allergy type things - occasional sneezing, runny nose, etc. but no worse than they've been for months, and the onset of this taste thing was abrupt and unusual..."
Every single nurse that works at my doctor's office
Longtime readers might remember back in August of 2009 when I tasted soap so badly that the doctor did bloodwork and I harassed the water company into coming out and taking samples of my water. I couldn't remember how that all turned out (this is why I blog - because my memory sucks. I can't even tell you how many times I've thought, "I wonder when that was..." and googled my own blog to find the answer). Well, guess who came down sick right after everything tasted soapy? Everyone. So I'm guessing that it's some kind of ominous precursor to a virus, which is absolutely unfair because we just got over the stomach virus from hell.
It's funny that back then I thought it was the water, and this time around water is the only thing that doesn't taste like roadkill.
What do you want to bet I've come down with something by the weekend?
