Happy Friday, friends!
Isn’t it revealing that the moment we decide to go maskless, all of a sudden people start getting sick?
A number of students and staff members at my school have been sick this past week. And it’s not necessarily due to Covid, either. There are still the common cold, the flu, strep throat, and even seasonal allergies out there.
I myself was feeling poorly last week after being exceptionally healthy for the past 2 years when we were mandated to wear a mask. Didn’t even get the start-of-the-school-year cold that I normally get. So much for being maskless …
However, my tests came back negative for either the flu or Covid, so in the end, I was diagnosed with the good ol’ upper respiratory infection aka the common cold with post nasal drip.
That drip, drip… is so annoying! Yes, IS annoying. I’m still experiencing it after a week!
Makes me want to go back wearing a mask because I most likely wouldn’t have been infected had I worn one. It was a nuisance but hey, it kept the germs at bay. But the silver lining is… life is starting to normalize and I can understand what people are saying and vice versa.
And because I’ve been sick, our meals this week feature a lot of soup, some from restaurants, some homemade. Like this Creamy Chicken Gnocchi Soup below. Homemade, btw, in case you’re wondering. Homemade gnocchi, too.
Now, it’s time to fiesta!
