Stubborn Sickly

A very inconvenient truth in being a chef (or in training to be anyway), is that you can't work when you're sick. You just can't! I've spent a good number of days sitting miserably at my office desk, trying to look productive while in a sickly daze. Why do I do this, I couldn't really tell you. But, when working with food, trucking through a sickly spell, convincing yourself that you'll be fine if you just sit down for 5 minutes, doesn't work as well. So instead of getting up in the early morning hours to take my food safety quiz today, I spent the morning gazing at my bedroom ceiling, wondering if I could get an egg to cook on my forehead.
