Not right now

If ever there was a time to have a mild viral sickness with a low-grade fever and a sore throat, this really wasn’t it.

And yet, guess what?

I’m really not very sick, and I have absolutely no reason to believe that it’s… you know… that… but honestly, having had no health problems (other than damaged joints due to overuse, clumsiness and age) for a year, could this really not have just stayed away?

I’m still being careful – not like I am much of a social party animal anyway, especially now – but aside from anything else, I really want to make sure that this current malaise doesn’t open the door for anything more significant. For me or for anyone else.

Fresh air, fresh fruit, and a brandy gargle every hour.

What could go wrong?
