Thank you to well-wishers here and on Facebook who wished me a speedy recovery. Alas, I fear all illnesses were self-inflicted.
I spent six hours crawling and contorting myself through the crawlspace of our house yesterday laying Cat 5e cable for my home network. Not only did I emerge filthy, bruised, cut, scraped and sore in every single muscle and joint, but I think ingesting a day's worth of dust just put the finishing touches on it. I wound up sitting on the couch at 5PM yesterday feeling completely miserable and sick as a dog. So I did what I always do when sick, I hopped in bed and stayed there until I felt better. Which I do, except for the muscles and joints.
I think of the spindly little fellow who used to wrestle, twisting and contorting himself in to inhuman shapes with little or no impact--and the great endomorph he has become.....shameful.
