Feeling better

I got a flu/cold thing a couple days ago, and have been trying to kick it since. I started getting symptoms Thursday evening, and was totally sick on Friday. I woke up this morning, still sick, and had to go tutor a little boy for a couple hours. I took a bunch of medicine, and did fine for the 2 1/2 hours of tutoring, but when I got home, I was exhausted and nauseous and headached and such.

After the second half of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, we went to Subway, split a footlong, and went for a walk on the beach. I felt better and better as we went along. We came across this tide pool where a bunch of little families were exploring. Of course I was barefoot, so I was kind of squirmy (I don't like stepping on squishy stuff, namely in this case, sea anemones). It was fun to poke stuff and find a giant red crab, and make stuff squirt, and when we were walking back I felt a LOT better.

I always thought that when you're sick, you're supposed to stay home, rest a ton, watch movies, etc. But getting fresh air, walking around, and exerting the sickness out of your body works significantly better.

So here I am, on my flannel sheets, with wet hair, chapped nostrils, and no more flu/cold (I seriously can't tell the difference), telling you that if, at all this season, you feel sick, exercise instead of staying in bed. I can almost guarantee that you'll get better faster.

Also, I feel like a million bucks after I throw up.
