the pause that isn't so refreshing

I’ve been struggling with a virus for five days now, something that has been going around town and nailed me good and proper. It’s in my lungs mostly at this point, ans so I cough away, waiting to hear back from the doctor’s office and busily not getting anything else done.

I promise to be back asap. As soon as the gallping crud has gone away.

PS: to prove my point, I wrote this post in the early morning and thought I had published it. But no. I wonder how many other things I have imagined.
