I woke up on Monday, and knew things were not good.
You know what I mean? That achy, painful feeling that something's just not right.
But I've been at this game long enough to know what it was: flu.
(That's the distinguishing mark of the flu: aching muscles. Colds and other upper respiratory cruds will runny noses, headaches and similar irritations. But the aching muscles make you know what you've got).
Thus I have not been writing. But I'm back.
