The Walking Dead

Actually, I'm more of the lying around in bed all day dead. Over the last few weeks, I've been developing a progressively worse and worse cough. The Mrs. had enough today (after I got up for a couple hours then went back to bed) and sent me to Urgent Care right after we all went to Michael's to stand around for about an hour while she found stuff to waste money on and sent us all through the lines separately so we could use 3 discount coupons that said "one per customer" on them. And then after we went to a patio furniture store for an hour to buy some furniture for our newly completed deck.

Yup, I was so sick I got to skip the grocery store to go to Urgent Care.

It appears I shall live. Though I did walk out of there with three prescriptions and instructions to go see my own doctor about possibly getting two more. That is, I think, a record. Even when I had pneumonia (which I do not have this time), I only got two prescriptions.

I was pretty sure it was consumption. The doctor, on the other hand, was pretty sure it wasn't.

I get to go to the grocery store tomorrow, I hear.

What's going on in The Company?? between you, Scooter and The Johnny, that conference was full of viruses, so it seems.

So, as my lovely wife has delicately hinted with her Lord of the Flies quote that was too obscure for my dullard reader base, what I had was a roughly 4 week "cough-variant asthma" attack. I've had asthma since I was a small child, but it has never manifested itself as just a cough, and it has never failed to respond to the inhaler before. So I was pretty sure it was something else. However, I'm responding all right to all the corticosteroids he put me on, so maybe that's it.

Now as for The JohnnyB and Scooter, they spent the vast majority of their time actively trying to avoid the Me, CherkyB, so even if I'd had The Plague, they wouldn't have caught anything from me.

Bozzetto, however, came home with a nasty cold.
