All that shittalking of the holiday season really saddled me with some bad juju. I was on the bench for all of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with some demon cousin of food poisoning, and then New Year's Day cold-cocked me with the flu. I mean it when I keep telling people "But I never get sick!" - which is not to say that I always feel awesome (nope) but just that I am usually not immobilized like this.
I am glad that convalescence is not a three month long, shades-drawn, castor oil, ice bath event anymore. I am not cut out for that shit.
