Sick Call

I hate being sick.

That’s exactly what I have been since Monday. And while I may have thought it was just a sinus infection or a cold at first, it seems all too obvious by now that I am battling the flu. My wife, Sara, started showing symptoms Tuesday evening, so we’re doing our best to take care of each other.

I thought of this song from David Wilcox, oddly appropriate since we were planning to see him tomorrow night but will be unable to attend the Denver show despite our plans. While we have some strain of the flu, even the Common Cold can lay you low and remind you of our fragility.

“Ever wonder why you get a cold?
Look at the word: spell it C-OLD.
C-OLD? You’re pulled over by the Reaper
For a warning…”
