So I'm still sick, which is going to ruin my Thanksgiving break. The Health services people have ruled out basically everything except mono. So I went and got blood drawn for that. Unfortunately, I failed my Strep Tests worse than my Philosophy tests....downer. Anyways, to prove that I'm not letting whatever I have get the best of me, I decided to write a little song called "Ode to Acetaminophen" (the active ingredient in Tylenol). In reality, I'm alternating Ibuprofen and that, but it's just such a cool name. Anyways, this is sung to the tune of some song, maybe "Ode to a Superhero" by Wierd Al, or just make up a tune, or read it as beat poetry. Anything should convey the message, song after the hop...

Well I been working some long days at Yale,
the school that I did pick,
but recently been feeling down,
something told me that I'm sick.

And maybe twas that awful ache,
residing in my head,
or numerous other bad symptoms,
that kept me, snug in bed.

well I found me this neat drug I love
Acetaminophen,
and when I start to feel bad,
I just swallow it again.

Yeah the sinus infection came and went,
alleviating some distress,
but the sore throat, oh it remained,
so I went to DUS.

I asked them what was wrong with me,
they gave me a nice reply,
and said to take this little pill,
without which I might die.

well I found me this neat drug I love
Acetaminophen,
and when I start to feel bad,
I just swallow it again.

So it's been two long weeks of meds,
The z-pack's come and gone,
yet I'm no better now than I was before,
even with 6 sweaters on.

They said oh, well that's no good,
temp 102.8,
we'll check for mono, but till then,
here's something really great.

well I found me this neat drug I love
Acetaminophen,
and when I start to feel bad,
I just swallow it again.

(repeat 6 times or until singer OD's on Tylenol)

So, who is sicker, you or the Lenovo? Hmmm…you both seemed to get sick at the same time. Is it possible you have a “virus??”
