You know what really sucks in Chicago? Getting a viral version of strep throat, won't respond to antibiotics, having a fever just shy of 104 for 3 days (those fever driven nightmares were more intense than most of my trips), feeling like every swallow you took was scraping the skin off a nodule the size of a grape that was growing on your tonsil and looked like cauliflour from all the puss sacks(disgusting imagery, but accurate), and having to drive all the way to fucking naperville on a Saturday cause that's the only place you could find an appointment with a doctor cause of the crappy insurance coverage your company has; for you non chicagoans, that's a 2 hour drive with Sat traffic each way, all while I was peaking with my fever, and every time I passed under shade in the car I went into violent chill convulsions, and every time the car pulled into the sun, I sweated like I was sitting on the sun (and no, I wasn't driving, I couldn't). That's what fucking sucks in Chicago. Shit, I hadn't been that sick in years!
