The Show Must Go On

Sixty-hours of bedrest with a peak temperature of 104.8 and I turned into a reptile; slithering back and forth to the tub to drop an appendage in the water in an attempt to externally regulate my body temperature like a cold-blooded animal, alternating between a full-out fast and eating anything I could get my reptilian claw-like hands on, getting online only once, and that was to post a well placed picture of Major Iceborg from The Fifth Element which likely resulted from my having watched her superior officer play Leon the Replicant in Blade Runner. My feverish mind works in miss tier euh sways!!!

Awoke with only a 100.1 degree temperature, swallowed two Excedrin, showered, dressed, drank some coffee and prepared for a new day. A day out of bed. Wife needed some shopping done so I snatched her list from the refrigerator and was going to put the beat down on crowds by shopping early. You see, my daughter's long-anticipated birthday party culminating with both children staying at the lake with my in-laws occurs today, and I'm in charge of grilling the burgers. Also, despite the horrific events surrounding their first week off school (my parents brought back my daughter yesterday as I could not leave my sick-bed, despite my father now having pneumonia! and I've only worked two days this week) we must attempt stage-two, else we are no better than the evils which infiltrate my delirious dreams (I did dream of you all during my bedridden tenure, mostly in perverted and disturbing ways - and to most of you, I apologize.)

I may not be 100% today, but I am NOT spending it in bed.

The show must go on! ;) Hope you all enjoy the day. Have one of your famous grilled burgers for me.

Glad to hear you got some rest. It's the best thing for you when you're sick.

Alas, it was not meant to be.

It saddens me to hear it! Hope you're feeling better though.

Glad to hear you are feeling better. There has been a lot of that nasty flu going around this spring. I had it a couple of weeks back and one of my cats decided it would be funny to steal the measuring cup from my NyQuill bottle. I still haven't found it. Little jerk!

You could take that as a hint, either way though, couldn't you? I would agree with you that your cat had your best intentions in mind.

Yah... so then the time she stole the ice pack off my toe while I was sleeping doesn't relate to this? She's a thief!

Felidae Feline, having founded our planet by populating it with their slaves (which we know as the Egyptians) are far superior in intellect than us mere humans, and your cat was no doubt trying to 'nudge' you in the right direction. They ask only our acknowledgment that they are the superior species as our thanks.

And its true, take my cat Daisy for example. Hasn't worked a day in her life yet she lives like a queen. She's got the right idea!

Glad you're feeling better!!!

I'm sure it's not the first time you've dreamed of me in perverted and disturbing ways!!!

... "perverted and disturbing"?

No, no, I'm going to be good, and I'm not even going to ask for the details. Ahem.

What's your fascination with swimming pools? Or was that my subconscious projecting that onto you? Either way, I'm not complaining.

For your information, the Supreme Court has roundly rejected prior restraint.

Yipes! I really hope you are feeling better by now and that getting out of bed didn't make it worse. :(
