Feeling Like the Grandma Who Got Run Over by a Reindeer
It’s Christmas Eve, and I’m supposed to be eating dinner with my family in a little while. I feel like crap. My nose is freakishly congested. I have a migraine. The inside of my mouth tastes like a mix of frosting and dog breath. Why do I always get sick right before Christmas? The worst part? No matter how bad I feel, my mom always makes me go sit on a crowded floor with a bunch of bratty little kids on Christmas day.
