Merde [Jul. 4th, 2004|09:55 am]
Young Geoffrey
[mood |sicksick]

I awoke yesterday morning with a Jurassic frog in my throat, a nasty hack and leaky sinus passages. I felt lethargic and dreary.

Worse, when Laura called to confirm our plans for the day, I felt honour-bound to cancel, knowing I would be too filled with desire to avoid her lips and so spread my illness to her.

So, I spent the day re-reading Solomon Gursky Was Here and fooling around on the computer, when I was resting. This is, I think, the 3rd time this year a cold (or something like it) has chosen a weekend to take up residence in my chest - I grow weary of its timing.

To ice the cake (with phlegm), I am carrying a pager this week - on call. And this morning, there is a message informing me that one of our machines is down.

Unwashed and clammy, my mustache (such as it is) untrimmed and tickling my lip, I must now hie myself to the office and see what is to be done.

No doubt, I'll be feeling fresh as the proverbial daisy come Monday morning.

Yeah, I feel almost certain that's going to be the way of it come the morrow. I should have just exposed her to the damned cold ...

No you shouldn't have. Whatever the hell is wrong with me, it's not a cold - it's starting to feel like a mild version of the strep throat I had a couple or three years back - a great lethargy has engulfed me.

Though god knows, I want you too, my dear.

Despite my melodramatics, I'm not feeling as bad as I did during the Great Strep Throat Epidemic of 2002 - I remain cautiously optimistic that tomorrow will, in fact, be another day.

I'll keep you posted, sweetie. (Er, yes, and the rest of you, too.)
