There definitely has been a cold or flu bug going around. I started feeling sick last Thursday night and was feeling full symptoms on Friday (stayed at home). I had hoped for the weekend to recover completely but a busy schedule on both Saturday and Sunday made that nearly impossible.
So, going to work today, I felt better, stronger, but still slowed and dulled by some lingering effects of the cold. I really did not want to go to work but there is just too much going on that I cannot let things sit one more day.
While feeling miserable waiting for the BART train on the platform, I was pleased to see that the train is perfectly on time. As the train arrived, I was very relieved and happy to find an empty seat to rest of aching body on!!!! Wow, can this be? Something I wished for on BART actually happened before my eyes. I can't even tell you how ecstatic I was to have a seat throughout the ride.
