“Sick Day”

Check out the girl in the Harbor Tunnel
Crawling to work six feet under
And the day has barely begun
They’re all chewing gum

And laughing
At the voice on the crackling radio station
Lead us not into Penn Station
Cause the best part’s just begun
We’re all becoming one
Again

And she’s making the scene
With the coffee and cream
And the copy machine’s not working
She’s a hell of a girl
She’s alone in the world
And she likes to say "Hey good lookin’"
She’s on her way
She’s taking a sick day

Soon

— From "Sick Day", by Chris Collingwood and Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne, from their self-titled debut album

Oh, so this isn’t a subtle message that you’ve gone all Ferris Beuhler today. Today would have sucked anyway. Last week, on the other hand…sigh…
/me looks out the corner of the window he can see, looks at the other walls, puts his head back down in front of the screen…

LOL, OK, now I get it.
Don’t worry, when I go Ferris Bueller it will be WRITTEN IN LETTERS OF FIRE ON THE SKY.
