Sick in camp

One fine Saturday, I was supposed to book out of OCS after we were dismissed, but I didn’t feel quite right. It was the afternoon then, and I decided I could do with an afternoon nap.

I fell into a deep slumber and when I woke up, it was already nighttime! I was running a fever and feeling very weak in general. However, I found the strength to gather my things and go down to the public phone to call my dad to pick me up.

Wonder what would have happened if I was too weak to get out of bed? There was no one else around in camp and I would probably have lay there bedridden until Sunday night when people start booking in again…
