Yes! The sun is shining (hazily), the birds are singing (or whatever that noise pigeons make is called), and I'M NOT SICK!!!! Seven days, right on schedule! Oh, I had to blow my nose a couple times, but otherwise I'm feeling GREAT! Thanks to everyone who e-listened as I whined through it.
L'Ailee doesn't seem all that worried about whether I'm contagious anymore, either, judging by the phone message she just left me. She informed me that unlike most Tuesday nights, her best friend will not be coming over to play chess. She suggested a few alternate activities. Five o'clock can't get here soon enough!
