The C-Word “You don’t look sick”

The conversation usually goes something like this: I say, “yeah, I’m not feeling well, etc” they say: “well, you don’t look sick” I have been hearing this for as long as I’ve been working. Sometimes I should have taken the day off when the thermometer hit 102 but when the …
