wages of illness

While the House was passing the minimum wage increase, i was being more ill than i have been in years. The stomach bug that started with Tiger last week and Dragon this weekend finally bit me, despite my best efforts to avoid it. David was a dear and reminded me that i was loved even when i felt (and often smelled) horrible.

Today I was making mental notes about what to discuss with Tiger since minimum wage is one of his topics that he really got involved in from our homeschooling days. It's funny, because i ought to be at home instead of at work, feeling my stomach cramp and my bowels rumble. But i'm a contractor and i don't have any benefits. I look forward to the day Virginia follows California, Massachusetts and Vermont's examples, which will free us all from the shackles of employment-for-healthcare that currently reigns not only in this commonwealth but in this country.
