And that's going to make my life horribly difficult. As some of you know, I took a sick day yesterday and was slammed for missing a hearing. (This after two straight days in court with a pounding headache and vertigo.) Admittedly I did a shitty job communicating with the office, as sick people are wont to do because they feel like crap and have been sick at work for days.

One of my colleagues texted to tell me someone else had to cover, presumably to make me feel terrible (don't know why else he felt the need to tell me another attorney, not himself, had to cover for me when he has SO much work). That was really helpful and now I'm lying in bed thinking I need to drag myself over there to make penance.
