I was in a funk last night.

Now I know why. I was under assault from the forces of illness.

Last night I woke up with the dreaded sore throat. The really bad kind. Rats, I thought to myself, I don't need this right now.

Lecturing today was painful. I could not concentrate on what I was saying. The students probably think I am a total flake. Gone one day and spacy the next.

So it is saline solutions, zinc (Zycam), teas, juices, soups, and sleep for me. There is so much I need to do, but I know I won't be able to do them well if I attempt them now. All I can hope is that I beat the bug before it can settle in my head and air passages.

Gosh, I wish hibernation were an option.
