Actually, I do have the stomach flu and the remnants of an eight week cold. When I interviewed with her in December, I had just received my cold and was wheezing (asthma) and coughing all over the place. I don't want to appear sickly again, or prolong my sickness by the 8 hour work day.
Luckily, she JUST emailed me back and told me that she had changed her plans and is in NYC anyways, so I wouldn't be able to intern with her next week anyways. Thank goodness! Hopefully these extra days will help me.
Thank you for the replies! I was so frightened that I would seem flaky even though I really don't mean it =(...I wouldn't want her to think that I wasn't coming because of a 'date' or something most people would associate teenagers with.
