There seems to be some cosmic connection between my impending surgery, my immune system, and the suggestions of my coworkers.

Last month, my PA made the comment, “couldn’t you put this off for a little while longer?”

Ta dah! I got strep throat for the first time in 15 years, resulting in the surgery being postponed for another month.

This past Thursday, another coworker comments that I should be eating light, and trying to take off a little weight before the surgery. I won’t even go into how rude that suggestion is in itself.

Ta dah! That very night, I came down with a vile case of food poisoning, and have lost six pounds as a result.

I’m glad I’m not supposed to go back to work anymore before the surgery; I shudder to think what the next “suggestion” might inflict upon me.

Heh... That's spooky! I can't help thinking that all your coworkers are really Jedi in disguise...

Was the food poisoning night perhaps the same night you took home leftover sushi?

Nope, not the same night.
I believe it was the catered lunch at work that day. That's what I get for going back for seconds...and not giving them a nuke in the microwave first.

You know I think you should get a lottery ticket, at a co-worker's suggestion.
