Anyway, last night I started feeling the onset of cold/flu-like symptoms, and I'm all, "What the hell, Universe? I was sick just a few weeks ago!" Of course, whenever I feel sick after going camping I worry about Lyme Disease.* But even coming down with another cold right before a holiday weekend where I'll have to be on-call/working (not to mention trying to get new comics and Newsletters created) seems more punitive than educational.
I'd made plans for the weekend, but right now I don't know. We'll have to see whether I continue to get attention, or if the Universe wanders off to lick itself and I feel better.
* I was in a low-risk area, and the crescent-shaped red mark on my leg was more likely mosquito-related, and symptoms/progression don't match really well, but I'm enough of a hypochondriac to worry, since unlike colds and flu, Lyme Disease does not get better on its own. If you have it and it goes untreated, things get bad.
