Degenerative Bone Disease

I am sick to my core. I have no symptoms except for feeling terrible. There are rings of pain around my eyes. I took days off work this week and got called sick note by someone in work.

I might never get any better and never get any worse. I think that I might be consistently below average for ever. I am a straight, non-sloping line on a graph, written in green ink. 

I am a set of data on excel. The data is slightly not quite good enough. 

I might have a wasting disease. I am wasting. There is nothing which is not wasting. Everything I do has been wasted. I am in a wasteland. A thinning, cold, anaemic wasteland. I am trapped in  my bed. I am on pills.

I will fight you sicknote. Any time. My superior fighting skills will shame you. I will do a tiny wee on your laptop.

P.S Get well soon.

I think the only perscription for your ailment is more cowbell.

(i hope that even in England you get the 'more cowbell' reference. if not, let me know and I will enlighten you, because it is very humorous and you will laugh and do a tiny wee on your laptop)

Is more cowbell to do with that Don't Fear The Reaper song?

Please don't wee on my laptop.

Saturday Night Live thing?

I don't actually see how anyone weeing on anyone's laptop is going to help matters. Pull yourself together, Socrates. Be a man. This has gone on for far too long. Open your window, maybe, and have a good, long bellow out of it. That'll do the trick.

No really, do get well soon.

He's not a man though, is he? He's a tiny crumpled sicknote holding a pee stained computer. All mouth and no trousers. You are afraid to fight me!

Pee-note. That's your name from now on.

P.S Hope you're feeling better.

Don't worry. I'm feeling better now. As if any of you actually cared.
