I CANNOT BREATHE. AAAAAAUUUUUUUUGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH.

This is frustrating, as I enjoy breathing on the rare occasions that I bother to think on it. Hot showers and holding my head over a sink while trapping steam with a towel works for all of about ten minutes before my nose once more decides to mutiny.
This is even more annoying because I cannot answer phones if I am breathing through my mouth and sneezing every five minutes. My throat is also rather raw from my attempts to breathe all night, which failed; I've had very little sleep. I walked smack into the refrigerator again, and I'm not sure I trust myself to drive...
But I'm going to drive anyway, and get some decongestant, and if it works I will see if I can at least come in half a day or something, once I can talk in a voice that won't scare and confuse customers. (Since my coworkers gave me the damned cold in the first place, I have no qualms about infecting them)
On the other hand, I was planning on looking for a new job this weekend anyway. *sigh* There's a huge surplus of employees at the moment, and I wouldn't be too surprised if they start letting us go, should the rates not go down. Other people have missed as many days and not been let go, but I still worry.

In more happy news, look at the lizards. This one, too. I ♥ Giant Day Geckos. And yes, part of the reason is because if I say the name too fast, it comes out "Giant Gay Geckos", which is just the best thing ever. EVER.
