No, not the music kind. I speak of the health variety, that awful hacking cough and at least half a pail of mucous, every hour on the hour.

This started for my wife yesterday or so, and today for me. My bones ache, my hair hurts—the whole thing. I’m in misery.

Not that I was in all that good a shape anyway, after going through minor surgery on the 6th. They had to put me all the way under, and so for the next few days I was getting maybe two to four hours of sleep at a stretch—if that. For all I know, Windows XP is lying to me about the date, and this is really March 32. I believe almost anything in a weakened condition. As we know, we can all trust Microsoft, yes?

So I’ll take the high moral road here. The noble and valiant way. I’ll lay around feeling like death warmed over until this either passes through my system, or else it sends me to the emergency room for a close encounter with tubes and worse.
