I’ve been sent home from church

Man in bed holding a skull
Oddly, when I searched for clipart for “illness” on Google this is what I found on page called Health.

I’ve been sent home from church. Not for misbehaving, but because all morning I’ve felt like I was going to be sick. I’ve felt all week that I’ve been fighting some kind of bug, as I’ve had very little energy (which has been more than just the late nights). This morning it hit me.

I arrived, delivered the papers for the AGM today and then left. Now the quandry: do I continue to work on my presentation tonight on the off-chance that I’ll be feeling better by six-thirty, or do I go to bed? With or without an extra skull.
