IT HASN’T BEEN TWO WEEKS and I’m already on anti-biotics. I don’t know who or what to blame, but it can’t be a coincidence that from the time I started and ended Paternity Leave that I had approximately ZERO health issues. And when I mean zero, I mean freaken zero. I was a damn stallion, absolutely crushing the gym and my scheduled Crossfit workouts (hate on ya lazy losers, go ahead). During that time I got an hour and half a day to go outside, so that’s what I did. I went to the gym. I PR’d. I did cardio. I sweated. I was in a caloric deficit. It was cold, it was rainy, it was below freezing, but I NEVER, EVER got sick. Not to mention, I spent a good portion of that time SUCKING BOOGERS out of my Daughter’s nose while having her sneeze in my face. STILL …. I never got sick.
Fast forward to a mere 10 days of commuting and I’ve already have a sore throat and a cold.
Hell, I don’t even know if anyone will read this blog. I don’t even know if I’ll post this when I’m done, but at this very moment it feels good to vent, even if oxygen can only make its way to my brain through one nostril at a time.
This is the problem with commuting aside from the normal shit storm of delays. You’re surrounded by millions of people coughing, sneezing, picking their noses, their ass cracks or whatever else the fuck they can reach with their gross fingers. This is New York City and this is what you get. I tell ya, I used to be one of those people that scoffed at people who walked around with Purell on them, well not any more. I’m gonna be that guy. Every FUCKING block I’m gonna re-apply until I die because this shit ain’t worth it. It’s bad enough that I’m under the weather, but it’s even worse when you have to drag your erratic temperature, sore throat having ass onto the train and pray your fever doesn’t break mid-commute while trying to navigate through clogged hallways and congested City streets.
Fuck this shit. Pray for me.
