Better, Feeling

Upon returning from sick leave, polite librarians should always share graphic descriptions of their ailments with their library coworkers. Always assume that a simple, "How are you feeling?" is actually a request to hear about the consistency of your vomit, see your surgical scars, and/or feel the texture of your rash.

I always find discussion our internal or external parasites as fascinating lunch table talk.

Oddly I end up eating along most days. Meh, serves me fine :)

Once, after a colleague called in sick, my former branch manager wrote on our dry erase board of our daily schedules "Susan out sick - diarrhea." Very classy.
