This afternoon I have come down with all the harbingers of a solid fall cold. Scratchy throat, a bit of postnasal drip, mild to moderate headache, burgeoning lassitude, and a serious drop in both attention span and IQ. I finally had to leave a major meeting at work and stumble back to the hotel, with a stop for sickie supplies. This has me missing a big business dinner tonight.

Been poking email and blogging until it feels sane enough to try to sleep. Which would be, erm, just about now, give or take another ten or fifteen minutes.

(It's so swell, being sick and alone in a hotel room in a distant city.)

Pobrecito! I hope you will take it easy tomorrow. Dine on room service and rest if you can...but you know that. So sorry to hear you're not feeling good.

As easy as I can today. Will at least try to go into work, having slept 11 hours. I feel human at the moment. :\

If it's the same bug I had, it hits fast and hard, then fades quickly. I got sick last Wednesday, but it was all better by Friday, and occasional applications of Benadryl have kept it at bay.

Good luck and feel better.

Love to you and a quick recovery. May you soon be in the embrace of those you love (or at least near enough that they can run to the store for you and pick up more tissues!).
