Day 97: Wednesday, June 15, 2011
Last week Yuki got sick from her friend's baby and for the next few days felt dizzy, naseous, depressed and could barely stand up. Soon after Willy slept three days straight in the kitchen corner and would only get up to eat and make weird old man breathing sounds while she gobbled up her food.
Today after I sent out my portfolio and application to the photo competition in the mail, I was going to go climbing, but I could barely skateboard straight. I thought it was exhaustion from staying up late, so I gave up on the idea of exercising and went home. Soon my head was pounding so I decided to take a nap.
I slept from 3:00 p.m. till 10:00 a.m. the following day.
My theory is that Yuki caught something from her friend’s sick baby… then Willy got sick from Yuki… and then I got sick from Willy (because Yuki and Ian are away in Nagoya visiting family).
I chatted with my sister online, and she said that it was impossible to get a fever (or whatever it was) from your pet- she even sent me a link to some article that a doctor wrote from a random newspaper as proof- but I told her that anything is possible… From all the things I have seen and documented within the past three months for Talking Barnacles- things which are so stupid and wonderful that you can’t even make up yourself… like the Shinjuku Redhead Triangle or the story of the 2 Pigeons... I believe they happen all the time and on a daily basis.
