under the season

I refuse to believe that I’m coming down with “the flu(this is what I don’t have, remember)”:http://www.thestar.com/NASApp/cs/ContentServer?pagename=thestar/Layout/ArticleType1&c=Article&cid=1072220535284&callpageid=968256289824&col=968342212737, so I’m going to tell you that I have some sort of whole-body-ache, nausea-and-chills, congestion-free cold. I appreciate your co-operation in this matter. If I make my Dad-family ill while I’m visiting them in Markham and Kitchener and other far-flung, exotic locales, I think there will be repercussions that I’m not prepared to handle. (Sparing them the risk by staying home and feeling miserable by myself would have other, more domestic repercussions, for which I am no more prepared by any means.)

I had a plan for at least dealing with the nausea, but that’s “now on hold(one toke still over the line, it seems)”:http://canada.com/national/story.asp?id=784178FB-A7EE-4DF9-88C7-1EC08ADF6726.

    sorry, bud. I’m on antibiotics right now and may have passed this thing along during the weekend social events. Blame Stephie, but see your doc if you’ve got anything green appearing. Better to get the Rx now than in the emerg later, trust me.
