There’s something going on in the intern house right now…all of us are sick with one thing or another. Ritah has been having flu symptoms since the beginning of last weekend, I got food poisoning yesterday, and now Melissa just called me and said she’s on her way home, and is going to a clinic because she’s not feeling well. I don’t think we all have the same thing, the last thing we all ate together was that Indian food, but Melissa and I were fine yesterday. The only thing I ate yesterday was KFC, and I started feeling sick early this morning so I’m sure that’s what caused my issues. The person I ate with is fine, so I know exactly what it was because I only had one thing different than him.
I first got up around 5 am, and as I was walking back to bed I saw something on the floor. The cockroach that has been hiding itself from me for a week. So disgusting…and to make it worse it was fast and kept disappearing. I got the only things I had to try and capture it…air freshener spray and a garbage can lid. Took a bit, but as of right now….it’s sitting under the can lid, under a bottle of water to weigh it down. I’m not really sure what to do with it now, it’s gonna dart out and hide if I lift it up.
I got an email from home as well that our dog isn’t going to be around when I get back. So basically I was a mess all morning, stayed home from work…slept all day; I’m just now starting to feel better. I’m finally eating/drinking something. Should be able to work tomorrow with no problem, which is good because I have things to do/finish up.
EDIT: Turns out it was the Indian food afterall. I didn’t even realize but Ritah stayed home from work today as well. It took awhile to affect Melissa and I which is weird….but we’re all having similar problems. We all had gotten our own separate meals so the only thing I can think is that it was the ice for our drinks. That’s the only thing we all shared.
