Sick Leave

I’m fine.

Honestly, I rarely get sick.

My sick leaves get converted to cash.

 

Frankly, I’d rather fake it.

Every now and then I need a time out.

Errands or just plain silence from work is good.

 

I can work from home while on my supposed sick leave.

And at the same time, I can kick up my feet and relax.

I can putter around like I used to.

 

I dreamt I lost my mobile phone.

Dream dictionary says it’s a sign that I’ve lost touch with some aspect of myself.

So I’m taking that as a sign.

 

Today, I’m going to hop over to the bank, get my nails done.

Sort the clutter on my table, maybe I’ll sneak to the mall.

This is going to be a great sick leave day for me!
