Sick

Today, I should be studying for my next exam on Monday.
Today, I should be cleaning the house.
Today, I should be catching up with friends I haven’t seen in forever.

Today I am sick.

It started on Tuesday afternoon, this pain the pit of my abdomen.
It hasn’t left.

So today, I am lying in bed.
I am drinking fluids. Eating bland food. Drinking more fluids. Sleeping. Repeating.
I’m not seriously ill, but clearly my body needs a rest.
So I will respect it, and give it what it needs.

The studying can wait.
