Today I’ve got the crud. Actually I had it yesterday too. For no obvious reason, something pollen-related suddenly started releasing copious amounts of crud-inducing pollen night before last. Regrettably, I caught it. So now I sound and feel like crud. My husband, delightful as he always is, tells me I look like crud too.
So what’s all this got to do with adolescent sexuality, you’re probably asking yourself? Mostly that I even though I want to go back to bed, I still enjoy dragging my sorry butt to classes to teach and talk about sexuality. How lucky is that? I knew I loved this job in health, and now I know I love it in sickness too. (I don’t get sick very often – this is the first time in years.) I highly recommend loving what you do – it makes the world a better place for you and everyone else too.
Please pardon me, I’m going to go back to bed now. Until I teach tonight, when I will be happy to get up and expand community college students’ brains for a few hours.
