So I have the flu! Fun times!

I woke up Sunday freezing. I had my comforter and a flannel blanket over me, curled up into a ball so small my calves were cramping, and I was trying to will myself to get up to put on a sweater. Court and Alicia were sweating in shorts.

"I think you may have a fever," Court said.

"Agreed."

They drugged me up on Nyquil and I kind of drifted for the entire day, waking up now and then to see Court typing then drifting off again. Courtney says I whimpered in my sleep. Lovely!

Anyway, we took my temperature that night and it was 101.4, then today when I woke up it was 101.1. I considered going to class anyway, then decided against it when I could barely muster the strength to drink water from the bottle next to my bed. I ended up going to the doctor and they gave me pretty pretty drugs so I'm kind of stoned right now. Audrey's boyfriend Wes and his friend Brandon came over to help me with calculus homework (Really? Try doing this stuff drugged out of your mind. Fun times!) and then we had a fire alarm.

Oh, and Audrey said, "You didn't go to class today, did you?"

"No," I answered.

"GOOD. THAT'S HOW PLAGUES ARE STARTED."

In other news, I found out I'm not 5'6". I haven't grown any in the past, oh, three years, I just found out I've always been mistaken. I'm awesome. For some reason, I've just always been convinced that I am 5'6", but the other day Audrey mentioned being 5'8", and I thought, "Huh! That's funny! I'm as tall as she is! I must be mistaken!"

So we were standing next to each other, both of us barefoot, and Alicia was like, "Y'all are the same height..."

"I got measured at the doctor, and I'm 5'7 1/2," Audrey said.

So yeah. It's just kind of like finding out that your hair is blonde when you've always been convinced it's brown or something.

ETA: How horrifying is this! Court got me a washcloth wetted down with water from the sink for me to put on my forehead. When I went to the doctor, it apparently fell off onto my bed. There is now a ring of white residue where it got wet. College tap water horrifies me so. I drink this, guys!

So Courtney and I were sitting in the dorm, she on her computer, and me in my bed, when I hear this faint "woooo" noise, like someone imitating a ghost. It was so quiet that I disregarded it, then I heard it a little louder.

Curious, I looked around, but couldn't identify the cause.

"Woooooo!" I hear a bit louder.

Finally, Courtney turns around and gives me a look. "Are you waiting for me to notice?"

Just as I'm about to protest my innocence, the noise sounds again while Court is looking at me.

"It's not you," she said.

"No," I confirmed.

The noise kept getting louder and louder, trilling a bit and the sounds of giggling choking it off halfway, and Courtney and I were laughing the entire time. Three knocks came through our wall. Courtney slapped her palm against the wall to answer them.

"I'm going to see what they're doing," Court said. I followed her.

Audrey, our suitemate, opens the door with her boyfriend in tow, laughing.

"I am so sorry," she said immediately. "He just thought it was the funniest thing. I made the mistake of encouraging him and telling him that he sounded like Free Willy in the tank, you know? Those whale noises?"

The thing was, it was pretty funny. Way better than doing calculus homework, that's for sure.
