I’m staying out of work today.
I don’t think it’s anything serious.
I’m sorry I can’t be at work today, which is a good sign, don’t you think?
The word “homesick” exists — meaning missing being home — but there’s no such word, like “worksick,” that means missing being at work.
Nevertheless, that is how I feel today.
To help myself feel better, I am going to post a photo of a painting that’s in my office.
Thanks to painters everywhere, to people who are homesick or worksick, and to you, for reading today.
