Morning Sickie

Still fighting the Whatever the Hell This Is. It seems like a combo cold/sinus infection but not the flu. For that I am thankful. The problems travel: one day it is the nose and the next it's the throat or the chest, I had a small pain in my right foot this morning and pondered that for a while but it went away. 

This is nothing serious but simply an irritation. Being a germaphobe, I even tried to re-trace where I could have picked up this treat. Was it the smiling cashier who coughed near her hand? Was it the door at that restaurant? Such craziness is part of the illness.

So this morning, I shuffled in for a breakfast of pumpkin muffin (a.k.a. cake), espresso, and regular coffee. That espresso and coffee duo was a brilliant idea. The espresso was cold and the coffee was hot and by shifting back and forth I obtained a small thrill.

Another cheering point: a friend invited me to be on his float at Mardi Gras. 

I am seriously considering it.

Hope you are better soon. E.

Thanks. I think years of training make me a natural Mardi Gras contender.

Feel better and don't rush it. You'll most probably regret it if you do. Have someone cater to your every whim (who are we kidding?).

Texas Leigh,

Upon your judgment I rely.

I'm taking my time.
