I have caught the bug that's going around. I took the day off from work and called in sick to tonight's rehearsal.
I don't often get sick. I've gone years and years at a time without catching a cold. I think tonight's rehearsal is the first I've ever missed.
When a cold or flu (what's the difference?) does hit, I feel miserable. There is nothing I know of that you can do about a cold except sleep and drink water and endure.
I caught a really bad one once in NYC. Of course, I refused to go to a doctor. I think that one lasted like six weeks, which makes me think it was influenza. That was the worst I ever had. I was young then. Today I have to think it would be even worse.
Speaking of viruses, I see Hillary Clinton won in Texas and Ohio. Republicans must be delighted. I don't think it matters who wins, Obama or Clinton, as neither can beat McCain. I keep reading about how this is the Democrats' year and no Republican can possibly win, but I'm dubious of all that.
