The funniest thing happened to me today. I just about managed to crawl out of bed, at a very very VERY late 8:36am after snoozing for an hour. *A symptom?*
I then spent a good five minutes sneezing for no reason. *Oh my god! Symptoms!* I got to work 30 minutes later than usual, and just plain 15 minutes later. [but that wasn’t because of the sneezing]
Followed by another good 6 minutes of sneezing at work. *Seriously, symptoms??*
Just before the sneezing fit, I had casually mentioned the legionaries thing to Danielle [Charis’s aunt and also a greek], purely out of the excitement of having a deadly bacteria present in my college. [damn exciting for me, my life is that dull]
Literally within minutes of my sneezing violently I get a call from Charis’s mum. There is, I’m sure, a greek hotline hidden deep within the bowels of the Beale & Inman shop that I have yet to discover. It’s probably exactly like the bat-phone, with that big red flashing button, except that instead of ringing it plays ‘Zorba the greek’ loudly.
Anyway Charis’s mum was very concerned about my health, and insisted on lecturing me for 10 mins on visiting a GP and making sure I was very careful and kept an eye on any possible developing symptoms etc while Charis fidgeted around dying to get me off the phone. His mum is so sweet and Charis always blushes like a little girl whenever she calls.
But now I see symptoms everywhere.
I’ve been feeling damn tired lately, especially in the morning.. *SYMPTOMS!!*
On a side note:
Habib who’s muslim, told ME that his father told HIM that the Prophet Mohammed had the longest arms. “Its true. I swear it!” he said.
[His father also read Readers Digest apparently. That is also true.]
To which Charis replied, “Yes Uncle, and my grandmother always told me Jesus had the nicest beard.”
“I swear, you are really the double bastard. What a crap you are” said uncle Habib.
I really love Habib, I’m going to miss him when I get fired.
