They... work from home!
Now here’s a recommendation we can really get behind. Unless it’s absolutely imperative that you show face for your office to function properly, take a day to do your job from home. Not everyone has this luxury, of course, but if your livelihood doesn't depend on your being there whether you’re sick or not, call the boss in your most strained voice, or shoot a quick email in between barfs, and let him know it’s best you work from home. And don’t get out of your pajamas all day.
