Home Sick

Any Scientist can tell you the three things that cause most common illnesses: 1) Being around Small Children, 2) Being Outdoors, and 3) Thinking Impure Thoughts. Apparently standing about outside during Tuesday's Evacuation Drill was enough to tip me over. I started feeling Not Well that afternoon, and kept going. At BHFT on Thursday morning, I found myself thinking "If I just hang in here for seven more hours, I can go home." Not good sign. I packed it in, went home, and slept most of the day.

The good news is that this ailment doesn't have the effusive secretions of a cold, nor the feverish temperatures of the flu. Mostly, I'm tremendously tired, with my head feeling awful. It's like trying to think through wet sand.

I'm feeling better today, but have already had one nap. I hope to be well enough for the Social Gatherings this Saturday (it's not as if I go to that many). I hope there won't be any Small Children present...
