The sinewy tendrils of the slow-moving Tree of Life in Warcraft III twisted my body in unnatural ways as I moved slow-motion, attempting to roll over to alleviate the muscle aches stabbing my buttocks and the knife in my back. Relief was not to be found no matter how I laid, for the alleviation would've been in its timely execution. But bedstiffness set in at every slow, incremental turn, for even when I broke free from the Tree of Life's entanglement, I couldn't move any faster than it. These were dumb rules to have been applied to my sudden illness Monday morning, but I could not escape them.

I was shivering, so I drew a hot bath and submerged my body under the scalding water, leaving only my nose and eyes above its surface, like a predator. At some point, I turned sideways, laid my head on the side of the tub, and fell asleep. My delirium caught up with me and I started running from the Tree of Life as it managed to grab me and caused my body to once again ache. An hour later I awoke in tub of tepid water.

I attempted two more changes of venue, each with the same result. Once my fever broke however, I was no longer being pursued. I've been sick the first two official days of my vacation, and only now able to get out of bed.
