Here is the test how you know when you are sick. . .
Groaning on the couch . . .
watching the Today show. . .
but pressing mute and turning face to the back of the couch. .
to avoid the food segment.
That was Monday.
Tuesday morning. . .
I opened up my notebook computer. . .
from the couch. .
a good sign. . .
I still feel some degree of responsibility to you my loyal readers.
By Tuesday afternoon. .
I noted that I was a bit thirsty . . .
for an iced coffee. . .
my beloved . . .
arranged for that.. . .
and I slowly . . .and tentatively sipped it. .
while looking through my new favorite foodie magazine.
The food did not look disgusting. . .
I didn't want to cook it mind you. .
but . . .it looked like something I might want to try another day.
Then. . .
around dinner time. . .
Terrence called and told me not to be offended. . .
but the lil' farm hand and his entourage. .
were staying clear until .. .
enough time had passed to deem us clear of flu. . .
Perhaps. . . if I begin to cook again. .
they'll come by.
We'll see who can last the longest. . .
In the meantime. . .I have my disinfectant wipes. . .
