Despite my protests and wishful thinking, the illness came. I wasn't feeling 100% yesterday morning, and by the time I went to bed, I had a sore throat. I awoke very ill. I've been battling a fever all day which has gotten as high as 102°. If not for the fever, I'd blame the respiratory symptoms on an allergic reaction to the insane amount of perfume enveloping the woman next to me at the opera (more on that experience when I'm feeling better). However, as angry as her ridiculously offensive smell made me, I can't attribute a fever to perfume exposure. Unless a fever is part of an allergic reaction? I'll do a little research, but in the meantime I'm resting.
