Taking a Sick Leave

i'm not really sick. the headache has subsided after the bowl of cereals and the unbelievably strong black coffee from Organo Gold, just one cup, thereafter. still not the type to lie in bed, and sleep while the sun is out there, bursting in glory. but i feel that i deserve this. to not rush, take the time to take used clothes out of this traveling bag one by one. not fuss over unwashed dishes. spend time to heat water for a later bath. run the checklist in my mind, slowly, of what to do with three banks today. and later, spend time, for the first time, at the newly opened J.Co's across the street. then go through the grocery list --- looking forward to a first full weekend, and a first full work week this March here in Manila. Then attend to two major emails and a deliverable for Peter. no one's sick. but someone deserves a leave.
