I Win!

Yes I do.

I am ill. Horribly, cold riddenly, whinging constantly ill. I know I'm ill because my wonderful self-preservation instincts have buggered off royally. "I know" I thought, "A good game of football will cheer me up". So with seminar cancelled I headed off to training full of bizarre enthusiasm, very bizarre in fact, as I showed up early to have a kickaround with a friend who strayed to the dark side and plays hockey.

Gloria then texted to ask me if I thought it was going to snow. "No" I said with the practised confidence of a someone who has lived in this country for 20 years and really should know by now that "no" clearly means "it wasn't going to until I said 'no', now it will just out of spite". As it turns out Fate was giving it 100% as Gloria was on the bus when the heavens opened and the horizontal snow attacked. I was at the astroturfs playing already. The problem with hoirzontal snow is that it is very hard to defend the goal when your friend insists on moving so you're facing into the deluge and she's got a clear sight on goal… so once again I end up on my arse, in the wet, thinking "I really shouldn't be here".

Anyway, how do I win? I win because I got home and saw the letter from the NHS asking me to prove I am entitled to free prescriptions by waving a piece of paper at them which I couldn't find on either of the three occasions I looked for it. Thinking I was now going to have to pay for my eye tests, dentist (memo to self, get appointment) and sweet sweet migraine slaying Naratriptan (you make the pain go awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay) I forlornly shook my file of important stuff sending said important stuff everywhere…

…And somehow in the middle of all the bank statements and passports and pieces of paper which could be rent requests, I saw it. My important, NHS requiring piece of paper. Now I shall have my vision and my teeth and my sweet sweet migraine slaying Naratriptan (you make the pain go awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay)!

Ok, I'm otherwise very ill, can't sleep for coughing, can't concentrate for the headaches and I'm too hot and too cold at the same time but who cares? I win again y'see?

Bed time…

    So little time
    We do nothing but compete

    No other could see me through
    You win again

  5. I'm ill too :(
    I think it has more to do with the passive smoking at Top B last night though.

  9. Whenever you mention Gloria, the only image that comes gaily dancing through my head is er….footy Gloria. That is who you're talking about aren't you? As in the Gloria who plays footy with us?

    And now you have more anonymous Oxford footballers! Wayhey!!!

    the ultimate footballer- please be careful because the rhythm is actually very dangerous.. it will actually get you
    holly's blog is very quickly turning into a forum for her random footballing obssessive fans….....not that i'm one of them. no way. never.

  11. Once again, I leave this blog unattended for a few minutes and I find lots of comments.
    Nice People Thank you for your sympathy. I have decided to deal with the problem using large amounts of chocolate. Clearly comfort eating is the answer.
    Niamh You were late.
    Winnie Yes that Gloria, the one who plays footie with us and supports AC Milan and who I will not be talking to on Thursday if AC Milan beat Man Utd as they might. Or it'll be a draw. Or we'll win. Whichever.
    the ultimate footballer Hello. I don't believe you are sorry for that drubbing but I'll let you off. Score any personally?

    I wanna play footie tomorrow but I can't. I hate germs.

  15. Chelsea

    U have my deepest sympathy for being in the ill club as well! I have currently retreated back to my real home in kent so my mum can give me lots of sympathy whilst i get over a horrendously painful bout of tonsilitis…...i think hours of daytime tv are slowly dissolving my brain…...

    23 Feb 2005, 16:45

  18. Oh deary, hope you feel better soon. Doing any sort of physical activity apart from sleeping warrants respect.
