Ooze a pretty girl, then?

I got a cold last week and on Friday I woke up with an oozing face. It was horrific. My chronic eye infection (yup still have that) flared up so my eyes were all swollen and gunky. My nose was… well you can imagine. And the corners of my mouth were infected with some crap-oozing stuff that glued them closed and formed scabs.


Not a pretty sight. No Miss Royal Leamington Spa beauty pageant winner here.  I was feeling pretty crap anyway, so I spared my colleagues the horror of seeing me and stayed home.

And now I feel amazing! Apart from the disgusting mouth scabs. The dark misery of the past few weeks seems to have lifted. My boss bought me a new contraption that should help with the plant mating. I feel I can do anything. Well, persuade my plants to mate at least.

And the sun has been out too, it was 15 degrees today. Can you imagine? Um, probably you can.

When I wake up, it is light. When I walk home, it’s not night any more.

I feel alive!

I recommend a good oozing to anyone. It’s like I oozed all my troubles away.

    Yay! Glad you’re better. Ooozing is always good (not fun… but you know that everything is leaving your system!)

    Ah Po, I can empathise. I have hayfever of the eye (go figure) so at the end of the work day, my eyes look like i am a junkie!

    in fact one day the Sister Person asked me if I had been crying. er, no, these are just my normal eyes after a day at the office. it must be the air con!
