I don't know about THAT, but I know that I probably FEEL BETTER than

you right now. Tomorrow a month of clean air in and out of the

lungthras will be complete. Of course now I am spending my time

watching the little kittens of hell catch the flu and fall under it,

one by one.


Don't touch your eyes unless you wash your hands!


Don't touch anyone else's eyes, either!


Cover your mouth when you make that blortch noise!


All for naught. It's a sea of pink eyes here, and every tea party ends

in sticky tears. Everyone is TOUCHY and untouchable. They sleep for

sixteen hours, but never the SAME sixteen hours.


Tomorrow, I'll have everybody home from school at last--after a week

of suspense we have three stages of flu represented. I can listen to

them blink and wait for the tickle in my throat to become a tunnel of

pain while we watch "Wallace and Gromit Face Mollusks of Vomit" over

and over and over again.


The Rev says he'll come home tomorrow if I tell him to, but he's not

touchin me without tongs and oven mitts and facemask and goggles and

cowboy boots until I'm not sicker than he is.


Could be a long wait.



This was probably from Mumthra.
