Summer sickness

My apologies to those of you who have to see me in person today – I’m getting it out of the way ahead of time.

I have a monster of a head cold and it’s July 4th weekend! Go figure.

I’ve taken enough Sudafed that my stomach is like some kind of gastronomic meth lab, which has it’s benefits.

I feel loopy.

My vision is slightly blurry.

My ears and nose fluctuate from being stopped up like I was underwater to being wide open after that first yawn on the airplane.

All in all, I think the medication is a boon and the cold is a bust, so I’m calling it a draw.

Still, if you see me out, pity my pain, beware my contagion and celebrate my indomitable spirit.

Or just point and stare.
