Tuesdays Broken Thermometer News

So, I'm feeling a little woogy today. Not too terrible; I haven't thrown up or anything.

So I decided to take my temperature. I bought a thermometer a few weeks ago when I was way sick, but didn't really use it.

The thermometer says my temp is over 100. That doesn't sound right at all. I'm woogy, not sick. If I were over 100, I wouldn't be out of bed.

So that was, you know, a wise purchase and all. :-(

OK, I took a picture of the thermometer in action. It says my temp is 102.3F, so, that's wrong. I'd be dead.

Also, why is it bendy? WHERE do they think I'm going to stick this thing that it would benefit from being soft and pliable?


  1. why would you be dead if your temp was 102.3? A couple of years ago I had to go to work for Safeway with a temp of 102. They made me come in and work half a day, because it was valentine's week and they needed the help in the floral department. It took me like three weeks to get completely healthy. I bet a lot of people had and especially happy week after Valentine's (or how ever long it takes the flu to show symptoms. Where was I going with this? Oh yeah Safeway's management didn't think it was too big of deal so obviously no one could die because their temp is that high.

  2. Oh also we have the same thermometer and it always say me temp is 97.6 occasionally 97.4. I don't think that's right.

  3. Aha! I knew it was broken.

    Well, today it says I'm 97.3. Hmm.

    You know, there is a slight chance that I actually was pretty sick yesterday (and the day before, it turns out), because I went to lie down and read for a bit and I ended up instead sleeping until like midnight.

  4. I think you were sick. Do you want Mike to bring you some chicken soup? He can take care of you.
