One of the lesser benefits of not being a classroom teacher any longer is that I’ve gone from missing at least a day a month due to illness to almost never getting sick. In fact, other than an occasional one-day thing, I can’t remember the last time I was genuinely ill, and I’ve never taken a sick day at my current job. Not once.
I have a motherfucker of a summer cold right now, is what I’m saying. I spent most of last night too tired to get out of bed and take some medicine but also almost entirely unable to breathe, sniffled and sneezed my way through work all day, got home from work and took some cold medicine and went directly to my son’s parent-teacher night. I may have been hallucinating for part of it. I’m pretty sure I picked up the boy from my parents’ place afterwards because I think I’m at home and he’s sitting over there, but hell if I remember it.
All that said: I will announce a release date for Tales from the Benevolence Archives on Friday if it kills me. That’s it. No more fucking around. It’s coming.
Assuming I don’t die.
