Literally, they do.
I was feeling fine up til Saturday, then I hada tickle in my throat on Sunday, when neighbor # 1 decided to burn leaves when the wind is blowing towards our house. It smelled funny, like it wasn't just leaves they were burning. Possibly trash involved. Anyways, it stunk, and it looked foggy outside all day yesterday. Today, I woke up with a bad case of throat-itis, which for me comes roughly twice a year. Then Neighbor #2 decided that today was the perfect day to erradicate his garden, leaves, and most likely trash as well, causing more smoke, and making me more sick than I was, so now I hardly have a voice let alone have the ability to function at work, but I'm going anyhow. I guess if worse comes to worse, I can make up my own sign language and confuse customers. Hmmm.....not a bad idea.....Well, if you see me at work tonight, and you don't hear me respond, don't take offense, just punch my neighbors in the head for me. Anyways, signing off.
