My last post seemed to send an abundant amount of energy into the ethers. I awoke with a very sore throat and headache the morning following the post about Newton’s laws and found my health steadily declining throughout the morning. My energy was sapped, I was, in fact, lethargic, and my legs felt like lead as they slowly carried me to my car after I was told to go home and have a nap.
I crawled into bed at just before 2:00 pm with an alarm set to call in to work to let them know how I was. My physical situation at 4:30 pm was no better so I was told to stay home and rest. I don’t think any of us had a clue what that really meant. My exhaustion was so far advanced that I actually slept for 24 hours!
Newton was correct in his theory that an object at rest tends to remain at rest. There were a few times I became partially conscious, only to realize my dog was three inches from my face. She was undoubtedly checking to see if I was still breathing and, once she ascertained my level of cognizance, asked me to let her out. With a few breaks during that 24-hour period for bathroom trips for myself and my dog, I finally really awoke at 2:40 pm the next day.
Had I known the power of a wish in the Blogosphere could be granted so quickly, I may have rethought my wish for a lottery win instead of a 24-hour mini-coma. At least I feel much more rested….and there is always a wish for the next lottery draw if anyone up there is still listening!!
