me and mr. a have been sick since Friday, having picked something up despite the new "wash your hands to combat bird flu" campaign at work. symptoms vary according to patient, with mine being a splitting and unrelenting headache accompanied by muscle aches and spasms. he cannot think. i haven’t tried to. we called in sick. we haven’t eaten real food. the most recently cleaned of us had to venture up to the 7-11 for milk. we’re bored and lethargic. the dogs are bored and hyper, vaulting off the bed and bouncing into action every time i raise my head from the pillows that are uncomfortable but less trouble to employ than to replace.
