I am in pain.
I woke up early and paid my bills. Ouch.
To add insult to injury, my throat hurts. It feels all scratchy and enflamed. Even the cheery little edamame that I ate for breakfast (because I’m so POOR I can’t even afford EGGS for God’s sakes) felt like little knives going down my esophagus.
I can’t take a sick day because I have too much to do at the office.
Oh, it hurts!
Don’t you feel sorry for me?
OK, enough of that. I’m going to be late for my conference call.
