Cold Medcine + Circus = Great Idea

Except not a Great Idea. This one goes on the Great Ideas Which Turned Out To Be Not So Great After All list. So I learned at TSNY today that I do not handle cold medication well, and I should probably not do things like fly on a trapeze without safety lines while under the influence of it.

I probably should've realized when during trampoline, bouncing started to feel a little bouncier than usual, and after just three or four flips I found myself alarmingly tachycardic. Eh, not going to let that stop me from flying.

So I threw a bunch of pretty lovely back end splits out of lines, which of course all turned hideous as soon as I let go of the bar and flailed to the net, only barely making it to my back or side.

My first catch with Jon, a back end split out of lines, went something like this (in the course of less than 5 seconds):

Jon: Hep!
Me: Oh look, there's Jon, doesn't he look handsome. Wait, did he just say 'Hep!'? I should probably do something. *releases the bar*
Jon: No!! *pulling hands away from mine*
Me: Wait, no? Uh oh. That means I should probably try to turn to my- *lands face first in the net*

My second catch was more like:

Me: Oh, look, there's Jon! *releases the bar*
Jon: Hep!

Haha, managed to catch that second one, but it seemed like it took a year and a half for gravity to kick in and bring me to the net after he released me. Honestly, I was just really happy I didn't sneeze on him.

I didn't take another dose of cold medicine before static. Of course, I could only get through a fraction of my routine at a time without running short of breath. Yeah, I'm awesome. I hope I kick this cold by Friday. Really actually as soon as possible. I only have 4 hours of sick time left after I called out on Monday, and I have to work Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. Friday is nonstop, too. Please send Dayquil and Kleenex. Later, skaterz.

PS - You can thank msdillydally for poking me to update. I've been meaning to, and I really will try to post more frequently. It's nice to know when one is missed though. <3
