I've got the flu.
It's the first time I've been ill in years. I can't remember the last time I felt so miserable. The good news is that we've arranged to have the kids out for the weekend. The bad news is that the romantic weekend is ruined. Since I'm generally healthy, being ill is an odd thing. I've been abed all day, absorbing tea, honey, Day Quil and various episodes of Law & Order on TNT. I'm trying to accellerate the process of beating the germ by raising my body temperature. I don't have chills but I ache, drip and snot. I really want to kill this thing.
Anyway. That's the news from Lake Woebegone.
